|YES, YES, YES!!!!
Finally somebody put in words what I've felt about texting while driving for years. I've lost count of how many times I've had to rapidly swerve my little Toyota Yaris out of the way or stomp on the brakes because of some distracted texting driver. Where texting behind the wheel is the worst where I live is in the parking lots of stores. These idiots driving down the lane between parked cars never watch to see if a car is pulling out of its parking space.
((Do you think texting and driving should be outlawed? And if so, should the person be incarcerated if they take a life? For how long?))
I'm not sure what the law for this is in California, but I do believe it should be against the law. After writing the above, I Googled on the subject and found the following, which still is scary. What is so important that it can't wait until a person pulls the vehicle over and stops before phoning or texting?
If a person takes a life while texting, no matter how young or tired they are, they belong in jail. How long? To the fullest extent of the law.
Okay, getting of my soapbox now and taking a DEEP breath to calm down.
