We need stricter laws and punishment for those that continue to text while driving. It seems like there's an EPIDEMIC regarding this and it's getting worse. If it isn't stopped, alot more innocent lives will be lost. If you can't wait till you reach your destination to text, you shouldn't be driving period.

You sound like a typical broad, mind your own business. You act like people are being maimed every day by these lunatic texters. Why don't you learn to use your mirrors, get the fock out of the left lane and then teach me how to drive. I think old clowns like you should be tested each morning before your ignition works. You name the test, eyesight, IQ, BAC, STDs. Your pick toots.

Texting while driving is more dangerous than dwi .
Your eyes are not on the road and you're looking away from the road a lot. Besides it's annoying when people behind you still at a light waiting for you to move. It's stupid selfish and dangerous. There's nothing that important that to text that can't wait until you're not driving a car.

And if those texts are as foolish and inane as most of the cell phone conversations that you can't help overhearing everywhere, you could get a real life and skip texting completely. Maybe after some Very Important Persons loved one is killed by an idiot texting and driving, we'll get strict anti-texting laws that mean something and actually take the texting drivers off the roads.

Alaska has implementing 1 $10,000.00 fine for texting while driving, the highest in the nation. Conversely, Texas has no penalty or regulation.

Texting while driving should be everybody's business. The fines should be severe, very severe! Who gives anyone the right to put you and your family at risk because of texting? Cars are killing machines in the hands of irresponsible people. Cell phones have become like a body part these days, if you lose it or misplace it, it's like you lost an arm or a leg. You can't go anywhere these days without seeing someone on their cellphone. How did we ever survive without them is beyond me,(kidding of course). I'm sure people have been killed because of texting, unnecessary texting!! It's happened, it will happen again, and it's totally avoidable, just don't do it!!

You need better things to worry about. Shouldn't you be digging up some dirt on your neighbors or co-workers? Busybody.

Most people text at red lights, and slow traffic, start blasting your horn at them to wake them up.

The sad thing is...people are killed EVERY DAY by drives who are distracted by texting. Distracted driving kills people. How immature to defend it.
