    Question: Would the righteous righties be against no-texting-while-driving laws because they’re an example of intrusive big government interfering with our personal liberties?

    driving is a privilege and not a right, so I think they would be ok with it.

    @echoraven

    What you say is true, yet in many places it’s such a necessity that it seems more than just a privilege.

    But in this case, being allowed to drive is not the issue. Say you have a valid driver’s license and are driving your correctly registered vehicle. The issue is do you want to have big-government intrusion like this? I thought Republicans were supposed to be against that, unless it involves women’s health decisions, or the imposition of the Christian religion on everyone?

    German executive salons have started to integrate speech-to-text and text-to-speech systems into their on-board computers. These cars also have UMTS and LTE access, in-cabin-WiFI and even a 90°-split-screen (meaning: the driver sees the GPS-map, and only that, the passenger sees a movie, and only that, on the same screen!).

    -

    And don’t get me started with collision avoidance radar, driver medical condition supervision, night vision display, traffic sign recognition and so on. But you Americans, just go ahead and continue to build 500 cubic inch engines and use leaf springs, I am sure the world appreciates this. Snicker

    Texting while driving should be an automatic six months in prison and $100,000 fine, under FEDERAL LAW for ALL STATES! AND, permanent loss of driving privilege in ALL states!

    Trouble is that even carrying on a conversation on a speakerphone, while keeping your eyes on the road, has shown to be distracting.

    Not until drunk drivers are treated that way.

    Radish, I agree, my brother was killed by one. My sister-in-law was arrested SIX TIMES on DUII before they finally threw her in jail! (30 days, suspended, spent two days in the slammer.)
