Then, like Europe, severe penalties for putting others at risk.
More LEO is not the answer, but effective enforcement is, NYS bans cell phone use and now texting too, but I can drive down main st of our little city, behind a police car, and in 3 miles, see at least 3-6 drivers chatting away, while the cop drives merrily along. Many swerving, sitting at green lights until someone honks, blowing through intersections etc. Two more cop cars cruising up and down main st will do nothing, unless they start enforcing and reinforcing the laws and dangers.
Anyone who gets caught texting need to go to a simulator, and have them simulate a 5 year old chasing a ball in the road as they run over them, while they were texting LOL to their BFF's, screaming parents and all! A reality smack up side of the head, is better than a slap on the wrists, or trip to jail AFTER they injure someone.
