I actually don't mind it. I would rather have the person riding shotgun to do all of that for me.

good, New Yorkers drive crazy enough as it is.

New Jersey Drivers are crazy drivers.

If New York drivers get any more crazy, we would be Boston drivers.

Florida drivers are much worse. This also went illegal in PA last year I think.

I agree with 1.5 ENTIRELY. Florida is needs to absolutley ban texting while driving. I already have to drive on one of the worst fatality highways in the US(Hwy 98) to work everyday, texting just makes it terribly worse. But I get mad at the texters that do it at a light, and go many seconds after it turns green. That video is perfect proof why it needs to be banned nation wide while driving. Talking though, is a better solution to this problem.

About dam time. U know how many close call i get into accident to dumb people on the phone /texting while driving...

I think they need to be put in jail for 3 years for this. Not some bs 100k fine an 1-2 weeks in jail.

viking805fan3472d ago

well its already like that in California.

... and I wish it was like this everywhere. Cars are meant to be driven...and have half naked women pose on top of them, not for texting, gaming, etc...
