What is this world coming to? Look around and all you see are zombies staring at a tiny 3" screen, not looking where they are going, walking or driving.

Thank goodness some states and provinces have instant tickets if people are texting while driving,...that is looking like an endless battle. Texting while driving kills more people than alcohol or drug related driving, and mix the 2 together...WOW...it's a monster.

I'm just waiting for the time when ALL cell phones are manufactured with a motion sensor that automatically shuts the phone off if it is in motion....over 5mph....that would save alot of problems. Right now it is an epidemic and no matter what laws and fines are implemented you can see it everywhere.

People that text have NO OTHER basic communication skills at the best of times (personal use)....with an exception of business use, where it is actually needed.

Welcome to the world of ZOMBIES

I am begging for something a little more harsh. If you're in the drivers seat and the vehicle is in motion and you answer your phone (hands free or not) or attempt to text the phone explodes and the vehicle comes to an immediate stop.


Edit: Sorry guess I must explain. I lost my nephew to an ahole yaking on his hands free cell. He claimed he never saw the child run out in the road. Andy was not in the road. He was standing next to the mail box waiting for the ahole to pass so he could step out and check his daddies mail for him.

I have no wish to set an example. I want to set the standard!

A good standard indeed. It is depressing how many people are killed just because of texting while driving. I do agree that a motion detection system would help with the issue.
