Simple solution. If you are involved in an accident your cell records are checked at the scene. If you were using the phone your insurance company can force YOU to pay for all damages to both parties, including medical and other settlements. Make cell users financially responsible for all costs associated with the accident, including emergency responders.
Time to get these entitles morons off their phones or out of their cars.

I wholeheartedly agree with Jim's comments. Addiction is a good word to use. As a driver on city streets, you have to be careful of these idiots, who walk off the sidewalk, or coming from the store in parking lots, with their head bowed low, while texting.

how about eating and driving? I almost got hit by a moron today that swerved into my lane on Hopyard because she was eating a cup of ice cream using a spoon. In the 45 MPH area, middle lane, going 30 MPH and swerving into both the lanes on either side of her. MORON.
