AT&T Steps Up Anti-Texting-While-Driving Campaign
I have seen personally horrific results of people texting and driving.
Distracted driving in general is a danger. Texting while driving is practically a no-brainer when it comes to the knowledge that it is direct cause of major traffic accidents and fatalities.
Maybe T-Mobile, Sprint, and VZW can pick up on this campaign as well.

Mobile Phone is Automatically Disabled While Driving; Incoming Calls Go Directly to Voice Mail; Those Sending Text Messages Receive Auto Response; Distracting Alerts are Silenced
Why not? It is illegal to drive while distracted, which is careless driving. It is illegal to drive while intoxicated, drunk driving. It doesnt matter if you are using hands free - you are still distracted, and not focusing on the road.
Watch this to become law within 10 years.
99% of the time they won't bother pursuing the issue until a van full of kids with grandma and spot fly off the road, flip over, eject the passengers, and wind up in a tree.
They figure too many people are calling because someone cut them off or they just do not like how someone else is driving.
Be that the case, appears that some departments allocate resources properly and may be commended.
This should not be a paid for option if it is going to save lives. Not everyone wants a Blackberry or Android smartphone either.
The option should be out there for everyone equally.
When it comes down to the bottom line, it is all about the $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$
