    Default Text a driver in New Jersey, and you could see your day in court

    We've all heard the dictum: Don't text and drive. Now, a New Jersey state appeals court has an addendum: Don't text a driver -- or you could be held liable if he causes a crash.

    Good. I'm sick of wondering if the person in the rear view mirror is going to rear end me because they are looking down in their lap. Also sick of laying on the horn when the light changes and the person in front of you is texting and hasn't noticed that the cars in front of them have already moved on.

    Don't text and drive, it's just that simple. People could care less though... I see it every day, everywhere I go.

    If the driver ignores the text, it's not going to matter much now is it. It's not stupid. it's a huge problem that is being totally ignored by the users.

    I cant for the life of me ever remember getting a text from someone saying "Oh, yeah...I'm driving BTW". What worries me most is young women, they cannot put down the fucking phones.

    Little confused. That doesn't have anything to do with this story.

    Your going to end up with Mothers against Texting While Driving. Then the feds will get involved with it and withhold highway funds to states who don't crack down on texters. After your first arrest you have to go to texter rehab. After your second arrest you have to do 30 days in jail, lose your cell phone, you lose your job, and your spouse dumps you. Now you get out and join a therapy group of x text offenders who have lost everything and now live in the streets or at the Y.
