    Re: Lawmakers to Propose Ban on Driving While Texting

    Pull over! You were txting and driving.

    Too many people getting in accidents using their cell phone.

    According to a 2005 statistic -

    Cell phone distraction causes 2,600 deaths and 330,000 injuries in the United States every year, according to the journal's publisher, the Human Factors and Ergonomics Society.

    That is not all that bad considering the amount of drinking and driving incidents. Since 2005 a lot more people have been using cell phones so I wonder how much that number has since increased?

    I wonder how many lives a law like ths would actually save?
