When they save lives... yes. Most people are too moronic to drive normally without any distractions to begin with.

Still illegal in many of the states that have enacted no texting laws. In Nevada, if you're in your car, even stopped, texting is a no go.

Here in indiana for a truck driver its a 2700 dollar fine for using a phone without a handsfree device, and thats for the first offense and its a 10,000 dollar fine to the company that owns the truck.

Most of the guys that drive for my company have handsfree devices as we have to make contact with dispatch multiple times during a shift.

While I was in charge of the safety program at work I did some research about cell phones and driving. It was widely believed, based on several studies, that using a cell phone made a driver four times more likely to be involved in an accident. This probability applied to someone talking on a cell phone. Now, imagine texting which is much more distracting. I recently saw some young woman driving on a busy street in an SUV while texting with both hands. She was using her legs to steer with. I also saw a guy doing the same thing while he used his elbows to hold the steering wheel. If these people get in an accident and hurt themselves, that is one thing, but they are very likely to hurt or kill other people with their actions. Texting and driving at the same time should not happen. period! No laws will ever stop stupidity, but I believe texting while driving should be illegal, just like speeding and failure to obey traffic signals.

I saw an elderly lady reading a paperback while driving once. She was holding it up at the steering wheel. I sped up and got the heck away from her!
