I wonder how many parents proceeded to text while driving their kids home in their mini-vans...

Kids don't realize how dangerous texting and driving is. An accident can happen so quickly. Kids keep your eyes on the road all the time.

I lost a friend and another paralyzed by what we believe to be a haed on collision from texting and driving! It is sooooo important for teens to learn the real dangers. I miss my friend everyday.

Again, don't get me wrong: I'm all for teaching teens how to drive safely.

But just go stand outside any school when the parade of helicopter parents are dropping their kids off, and you'll question the focus of this campaign.

Of course, it wouldn't be politically fruitful to tell adults how to drive...

YOU ARE RIGHT!I followed a driver from Park St. all the way out Rio Rd to Rt 29 at 4:00 in the afternoon and thought they were drunk. They crossed the center line into the oncoming lane 3 times and ran off the edge of the road 4 times. When I got to the stoplight and was in the lane next to them, they had their phone in their hand texting. And continued to do it when the light turned green and they took off.
