Do you think the fine for texting and driving is bad in NY State? If you text and drive in Alaska the fine is $10000 if caught. Unbelievably, the fine for drinking and driving in Alaska is much less....

People who text and drive are putting you and your family in harms way. The fine should be severe. Imagine getting killed because someone was sending a text and not paying attention to their driving. Imagine losing a Mother or Father or child due to someones negligence of looking at their phone instead of the road. You can't put a price on a human life, the fines should be extremely high to deter people from doing it.

I agree though do you feel the fine should be so much greater than it is for drinking and driving?

I couldn't agree more, and if the texts are anything like the foolish/inane cell phone conversations that you can't help over hearing everywhere, they probably don't need to be sent at all.
