We all know texting and cell phone use is dangerous while driving. So, we pass laws that make it a violation. These laws didn't do didly! Surveys conducted before and after bans on cell phones and texting show no reduction in their use. Absent confiscating a driver's vehicle for a violation, there isn't much that can be done. In other words, cell phone use and texting is so important to so many drivers, mostly the younger drivers, that they will risk getting caught, and worse yet, risk a serious crash, before they will not use a cell phone or text while driving.
