brobinson2001: This is kinda why I almost miss my eye tumor. It pushed my eye out and to the side, so I could literally safely text and drive, because my field of vision was so wide I could see "through" my phone.

Then again, not looking like Igor some, lose some

That's EYE-gor.

I drove I-40 from OKC to Albuquerque in the middle of the night while reading a book.

Think I read eight paragraphs in about six hours because the road kept distracting me.

It's quite obvious that just handing out tickets does not work. Let's take it up a notch and start confiscating phones whilst issuing tickets. You can have it back if/when you convince the nice judge that you deserve to have it back. You act like a 2 year old then you get treated like a 2 year old.

/and after that, if you still don't get it, they hand you a hammer and make you smash your own phone

I'd like to see a camera installed near the rear-view mirror in all new cars, that would take a photo of the driver and passenger seats an instant before the air bag deploys. Any driver caught texting, eating a Big Mac, applying makeup, or any other distracting nonsense would automatically receive a huge fine/prison sentence.

ecmoRandomNumbers: Gig103: Wow - doesn't surprise me but wouldn't it make more sense to just pass an anti-texting law?

Phoenix and Tucson already have anti-texting laws, but I don't think it's done jack shiat. Getting a $300 speeding ticket will probably cut down on that. Texting is seriously the most goddamned distracting thing I've ever seen anybody do while driving. People who just drive drunk at least have one bloodshot eye on the road in front of them.

This law has been on the books for a while. It is only for the interstates.

Word to the wise: "Texting" is probably a blanket term meaning any staring at a cellphone while driving.

Not surprised.

I's be okay with them shoving a nightstick up their ass until they couldn't shiat right for a week.
