Submission + - Anti-texting while driving movement heats up

coondoggie writes: "Legislatures on both coasts are looking at developing laws against texting (ala Blackberries and other devices) and driving. Three South Jersey lawmakers say texting while driving is even more dangerous than using a cell phone because it requires drivers to divert their hands and eyes. And according to a Philadelphia Inquirer story they've introduced a bill to ban it. And the aren't the only ones. Washington's legislature has a pending bill making it a primary offense to text and drive. "Primary" means law officers can stop anyone they see texting behind the wheel; they do not need another reason to make the stop. The state House already approved the bill, backed by the Washington State Patrol. http://www.networkworld.com/community/?q=node/1291 2"
