gregscott: Many states have Prima Facie Speed Limits, where the violation driving at a speed which is unsafe for conditions, regardless of posted limits.
Bucky Katt: Don't text while driving, jackass.
Mouren: periboob: I like the idea of the camera that snaps when the air-bag is deployed, but word would get out, and they would stick chewing gum over the camera. My idea is to have a sensor in the driver's seat that senses cellular activity, and disconnects the driver's seat belt and disables the air-bag. Maybe Darwin can address the problem.What about those people who's phone is in a dock to act as a GPS or music player?What about people who use phones in the rear passenger seat of the driver's side?Sounds like a lot can go wrong with this.
MonoChango: Mikey1969: they feel that it's their right to saddle you with a charge that will follow you around for the rest of your lifeAs long as they get their $10,000 legal fines and fees. In AZ, they can also give you a DUI for "Impaired to the the slightest degree" That is if you have 0.01 Blood Alcohol and you don't signal to change lanes they can give you a DUI. I figure they are now just armed tax collectors.

cassapolis: JEEBUS FARKING CHRIST!!! the police are to enforce laws not to make up or interpret them as they seem fit. I am NOT against an anti texting law, but I am all kinds of against cops interpreting laws however they want. at this rate we won't need judges or lawmakers very soon.
Gyrfalcon: The judge rolls his eyes and says "Well, Mr. Prosecutor?" and the DA hesitates just a second, looks at the stack of considerably more important cases on his desk, and says, "Whatever, your Honor." BANG. "Very well, Counselor, case dismissed." So now we have to have laws for every dang specific thing.
ecmoRandomNumbers: Getting a $300 speeding ticket will probably cut down on that.
Watubi: I was hit from behind by a person eating a sandwich. That driver was issued a ticket for some distracted driving law and this was 20 years ago. I don't know why they need a new law for every dang specific thing.
karmaceutical: I don't think I've ever seen someone on their phone actually exceeding the speed limit.
JVD: Gig103: Wow - doesn't surprise me but wouldn't it make more sense to just pass an anti-texting law?I like their intentions of not passing more laws, but it doesn't seem appropriate to issue a speeding ticket. Doesn't pretty much everywhere have laws against inattentive driving? Using that would make more sense to me.
