As for the rest of your comments.... The poster was right... Texting while driving is hard to control.
Police Officers don't have their vehicle's on autopilot.... we have to be able to control our vehicle safely as well. This can't be done if we are trying to stare at Hugetits McGee over there to see whether she is texting or dialing 911.
Then of course, there is the problem of, outside of viewing somenoe doing it (and not crashing our own car trying to do so) we have to rely on.... admission.
As Ive explained to Ikari before, the "Texting While Driving" law will appear to be a smashing sucess in bringing down the number of crashes attributed to texting while driving because now that it is illegal, many people who would have otherwise admitted to texting while driving as the reason why they made a mistake and hit another vehicle are now going to attribute it to some other form of distraction that is not yet illegal. Making the reported number of texting while driving crash incidents lower, and the law will look like a smashing sucess.
