Needed?

What's needed is for people to have enough sense not to do an obviously reckless action that DOES distract the driver and DOES cause many accidents. What is NOT needed is an absolutely un-enforceable "feel good" law that will do very little to break people of this dangerous habit. How is an officer supposed to decide if you're texting or dialing when he sees you punching keys? The laws regarding search and seizure may be looser for motor vehicles, but they are not so loose as allow police to seize every cell-phone from every driver involved in every wreck, nor to subpoena call records in the hope of finding something. In fact, short of a spontaneous admission, no one is getting cited for this successfully. The state would have much more by financing a public education campaign on TV, radio, and the Internet, warning people just how dangerous this is.
