so a friend of mine of her facebook page put up a video about texting and driving that, of course, will make you bawl your eyes out. i've been thinking about this for a while, but do you all feel that making texting while driving illegal is the way to go? in my state there isn't a statewide ban on this yet, and only been implemented in a few cities. in those cities the rates of crashes from texting has increased because people are trying harder to not get caught while texting and driving. obviously i don't feel making it illegal works well from what i've seen.
i think making children watch videos like the one i just watched while in school, and teaching and teaching about the dangers is the way to go. kindof like smoking, i guess. we've made it incredibly uncool to do with just education, and we didn't have to make it illegal.
what do you think?
