Texting and Driving!

You might hear more now a days about people who text and drive. Most of the time you hear their own personal stories on the news on how they realized that it can happen to you if you risk it. People die, people survive and people start to realize it isn't so smart. It isn't just with texting, its with anything that can distract you while you are behind the wheel. I'll admit, I have texted while driving and I'm sure most of you have too. Some say it is worse for teens who text while drive because they are still inexperienced but no matter what age its still a big risk to take. This site has statistics about teen while they text and drive. South Dakota has had tried a few times to ban texting and driving. I don't honestly get how you can have a law against texting and driving. How would they know that you were on your phone while driving? And if they do ban texting while driving they should just ban using cell phones all together. Thirty states in America have bans against all texting and driving. Eight other states have it banned for teen drivers. There is a story, A Lesson Learned The Hard Way on Keloland about Amanda Block's experience with texting and driving.
