They should confiscate the infernal texting machines. It is worse than drunk driving. These people are putting your life and anyone in your cars life in danger. And they could care less. Selfish, it's all about me attitude. People who test are turds.

If you have to text while driving get a designated driver you losers
liars and thugs

it must have accured to you by now that cops can and do break the law. and now with this information, just hope that you are not involved in a traffic incident with a cop who may have been distracted while texting or talking on his cell phone, or looking at who knows what on his computer..........
