The Baltimore Sun reports today 25% of teenagers told researchers that they text while driving a car, and almost half say they’ve been in cars with someone who sent text messages while driving an automobile.
Cell phones cause enough accidents even without adding in the texting while driving.
Texting while driving is against the law in Maryland as of October 1st. But I wonder if a single texting while driving charge has been brought against a single driver. How can you prove texting versus making a phone call or even looking on the Internet which, ostensibly, is not a violation of the statute.
What is the answer? I really don’t have any idea. But someone needs to think of something.
