Texting a Driver in NJ May Make People Liable for Accidents

Re: bad idea
The ruling is very clear as to an exchange via text message that would distract a driver would require multiple text messages sent between users and user would already be aware that the drive is driving. Very easy to prove in court if the accident was caused by a irresponsible driver text messaging another irresponsible human being that is aware the driver is operating a vehicle.
There needs to be more laws like these to get idiotic drivers to stop using their phones while driving its unbelievable how many drivers I see on a daily basis using their phones and driving.
What I find most baffling and cant really wrap my head around the logic is the following. If you are in traffic and your car is still moving even if it is at a speed of 5-10mph how is that a sign for the drive to take his eyes of the road and begin using his phone?
90% of the accidents on the freeway I drive on are stupid drivers who rear end another driver because he was too busy looking at his or her phone while drive in traffic.
