    Is that a trick question LMFAO

    So what is the problem with another legal way to pull over anyone at anytime?

    I wonder if our senators go jumping up and down screaming "ooh ooh let me do the next new stupid law"

    Lets look at the real facts here.

    Texting while driving is without question dumb, stupid, dangerous, punishable by reckless or careless driving, and yes people are dying from inattentive driving it creates. Like stated earlier the increase in accidents from this activity is well above the other distractions inside a vehicle.

    Creating a new law for anything that tickles anyone in anyway when the action is already illegal under current law only waters down everything, and make the whole legal system an even larger mess of unusual, confusing, and contradicting laws that is almost impossible for the average citizen to understand.

    There is also a problem with what we call it when a car collides or crashes with another car, another object or anything it is not an accident though we are prone to call it such. These things happen for a reason, the idea of making it seem forgiving by referring to a crash as an accident only complicates things further.

    Still I believe there is an even more important issue, and that is
    Accountability and responsibility and they both are seemingly often missing from the process. I have seen many discussions and debates over new feel good laws, and common sense seems to elude them often.

    No matter if it is drunk driving, distracted driving, careless driving, or even reckless or some other illegal action involved there are already laws to cover them, but the penalties (both fines and criminal) are not always inline with the specific offense, and there needs to be adjustments to make the penalty match the offense. This is the case with a driver who causes a crash and harm to others and property by careless driving or reckless driving caused from driving while texting, while reading the paper, emailing, excessive speeding, driving while way too old, or anything else that was the real cause of the crash, and there was no accident that a driver not paying attention for any reason had collision etc.

    You make tons of senseLenny but my contention is that passenger car driving laws are for the staes to decide not the Feds.

    Agreed!

    But how to convince our law makers that making too many laws only leads to problems like this, and stopping this nonsense of just looking to get their names in the news (good for name recognition, and getting re elected etc) from writing up a bunch of feel good crap all the time is just wrong and needs to stop.
