Triple A aims to pass texting-while-driving laws in all 50 states by 2013.
[Triple A = AAA = American Automobile Association]
American Automobile Association (AAA) is beginning a nationwide effort to pass federal and state laws, which would ban texting while driving in all 50 states by 2013. Some people don't need two thumbs to do it, they can manage one handed. But nobody can read and write and drive at the same time. Studies have shown that text messaging takes the driver's eyes off the road an average of 4.6 seconds, or as long as it takes to travel the length of a football field at 55 miles per hour. Interestingly, a number of surveys indicate that 80 to 90 percent of the people approve the bans.
