...and here are some basic concepts: NTSB and DMV, take notes!
Spotted using cell phone while driving - $500.00 1st offense, $1000.00 for second offense.
Spotted texting and erratic driving - $500.00 fine and loss of license for 6 months. $1000.00 fine and loss of license for one year.
Accident Discovery - Automatic Phone audit to all involved parties in the case of an accident. If texting time coincides with accident, phone is seized and used as evidence - $1500.00 fine, loss of license for one year, driver must enroll in no-phone withdrawal training and provide 40 hrs of community service, 1st offense. 2nd offense - Removal of both thumbs at 1st joint below fingernail, loss of license for 3 years. Hopefully the 3rd offense won't be possible.
Bottom line - If you are looking at your phone, you are NOT looking at where your vehicle is going or cognizant of the many conditions that surround you while moving in traffic. You are endangering the life of me, my family and my dear friends. It is time this rediculously childish and deadly behavior comes to an end. You are no different than a slobbering DRUNK behind the wheel and should be treated as such!
