It is a proven fact that someone texting at the wheel is just as deadly as a drunk driver. That being the case, they should have the very same penalties, $1000.00 fine, 1 yr loss of drivers license, hi-risk insurance rates for three years and of course...attorney fees and community service! Subsequent offenses should also be parallel with habitual DWI penalties.
The "driving texters" laugh and ignore the current 50 dollar fine, yet they endanger my life and my family's life due to their irresponsible habit that can easily maim and kill people. I see at least 3 texters on the road every single day.
A $50 fine for that kind of driving behavior? Right...
