You've heard of texting while driving being compared to driving drunk, right? Which means a person can't do it without endangering others. Anything in that category should be illegal while operating a vehicle.
You drive a bike, right? You should be really concerned about distracted driving. Even people who aren't distracted sometimes don't notice bikers.

In another 50 years all of these driving laws will be moot. You'll no longer be able to drive your car on a regular basis. You'll get in, tell the dashboard your destination, and the computer operated vehicle will drive you safely there. You'll have to get a permit to allow you to take over the operation of the vehicle if your destination is unknown (vacation, or just for fun driving).
Of course, I still won't be required to wear a helmet, or a seatbelt on my bike. My texting keyboard will be built into the gas tank.
