Texting while driving.

According to a Harris Interactive Survey, 9 out of 10 Americans say that texting while driving should be banned. What I want to know is what the other 1 out of 10 are thinking.

It’s a dumb idea to txt and drive, of course, but how in the world would any police force treat such a ban? Random RIDE spot-checks to see if your cell phone’s “Sent” folder has anything recent in it? Wireless carriers dropping SMS service for customers that switch cellular towers within a certain time interval?

This is one of those common-sense things that doesn’t need a ban so much as a little education. If someone was truly dangerous while driving and txting, the police could, if they were so inclined, book it under existing HTA charges as “careless driving”.
