  • The answer is quite simple.

    Texting while driving accidents cause nearly $8 BILLION worth of car accidents (Assuming the average car wreck causes $5,000 worth of damage) and while this is great for the car repair industry, about 4,000 people die per year just because of distractions within the vehicle and 450,000 are injured! You've got to be quite thick to not let these facts sink in.

    If you claim that it will only make matters worse and persons will simply be hiding them, good for them! If they crave the attention so much that they cannot handle real life, have at it. I'm sure I'd feel so comfortable about knowing I am 4x more likely to kill or injure a fellow human being and even more so within a neighborhood. Why endanger others while texting when you could just drive off a cliff and injure less people.

    Seriously, if you text or call while driving, I immediately regard you as a true idiot and deserve not to be worthy to drive on any nation's roads and should be forced to serve time or volunteer cleaning up car accidents to see the true horrors that these distractions cause.

    Be safe and drive as if you actually have regard for your health and others.

    Cheers.

  • Hands Free should be a Law in every State!

    How could some be so ignorant to look down at their phone to answer a text, it's putting everybody else on the road in danger because of the level of concentration that it takes. Allof you over in the no section probably text and drive on a daily basis and don't want to hide your phone while your driving.

  • Yes, It Definitely Should Be illegal!

    People that are arguing that it shouldn't be illegal obviously aren't aware of the hazardous things in this world! Texting is the most recently cause of human death. People are careless and don't pay attention to the road in front of them and are paying more attention to a worthless text message. Put your needs before your wants people!

  • Same Penalties as Drunk Driving

    Texting while driving is causing 10 times more accidents that drunk driving. I am not condoning drunk driving, but at least a drunk driver is TRYING to drive, while the texting driver could care less. The penalties for texting while driving should be as severe as drunk driving, and the convicted person should have to go without a phone for at least a year. It is very easy for a law enforcement officer to determine if a driver has been texting simply by performing a phone records check from the computer in his car. This will quickly tell if the suspect driver had sent or received a text within any period of time up to the accident or after being pulled over.

  • Texting and driving should be illegal

    Texting while driving is the #1 cause of teen deaths, 3,328 people died in 2012 while texting and driving and no text is more important than a life. And even if your texting your friend, mom ,dad , brother or grandma, no text is more important than your or someone else's life.

  • Yes it should!!!

    It kills many people yearly. 9 people every day die because of texting drivers. According to research, teens have a reaction time of a 70 year old when driving or in a car crash. In 2012, 3,328 people were killed in a texting and driving accident. We need this to STOP.

  • Is a text really worth someone's life

    A text message is a text message so what if its your best friend or boyfriend that person can wait what a couple minutes. Just think is a text message worth almost killing someone. Responding to a text and driving has so many risks. Many people die every day don't make it more that.

  • What about emergencies?

    Hypothetically speaking: You are driving to work when you get a call from your mother, your brother (sister,cat,dog,whatever), just got hit by a car! So you rush home calling your dad to tell him. Then when you get home your mom is heart broken but you and your dad are there so she is comforted.
    None of that would have happened if you weren't allowed to use your phone while driving. And this is a very real situation.You would have gone to work clueless, along with your dad and what would the situation be when you get home? Awful. All because your mother couldn't call you right then.

  • It should be legal in every state that the governent thinks it should be!!!

  • People will still want to do it

    If you think of the ban on alcohol, it didn't help, it just made people want to make and drink alcohol even more. If we ban it people will hide it and get themselves into more trouble because they will be looking even further down at the screen ad less at the road trying mot to get caught.

  • You cannot prove they were texting.

    Texting and driving is dangerous, but if you ban texting and driving, you must also ban all other distractions behind the wheel. Plus, if a cop pulled you over, how could he prove that you were texting and driving. Texting makes up 23 percent of distracted driving accidents. But, lets not forget about the other 77 percent. Why arent we complaining about that. If you ban texting and driving, you must ban screaming children, food and drink, and all other distractions.

  • It wont help!

    Making it illegal will not help! It will only make matters worse! People will be hiding their phones or moving them lower so that police officers can not see and that causes further harm.
    Think back to prohabition! Alcohol was ilegal and since it was illegal there was more crime. People still wanted alcohol so they drunk it/made it anyway. It made everything a whole lot worse.
    The same will happen with texting and driving.
