Like most things government,

Like most things government, the reality is the opposite of what is claimed.

I work in the auto insurance industry with actuaries who actually figure out statistical likelihood of claims. In EVERY state where texting is now illegal, accidents from texting have INCREASED. Why? It's simple. Instead of holding the phone up high so people can see the phone and the road, they now hold it low to avoid a state penalty and they take their eyes off the road.

The reality is this is just another statutory means of extracting money from people who have harmed no one.

"In reality, the Constitution itself is incapable of achieving what we would like in limiting government power, no matter how well written."
