Ban Texting While Driving?

18 Sep

The state of New Jersey introduced legislation last year that bans “texting” while driving a car. The recent L.A. train crash reportedly was caused because the driver was “texting”. “Texting” or SMS (Short Message System) is on the rise because smart phones like the BlackBerry and the iPhone make typing easy. However to craft a message, you must have one hand free and you must concentrate on sending the message.

Technology lets us communicate faster and easier than ever before, but is it leading us to certain death? Services like Jott translate your voice to text, so your hands are not on the wheel. However is driving while “texting” more a physical the issue or is the danger more of a concentration issue?

Should all states introduce legislation to ban “texting” while driving?
