We are going to look back in amazement in 30 to 50 years. We are going to ask why did we allow anyone at anytime to text and drive? The needless accidents. The needless loss of life. The needlessly paralyzed innocent passengers.
At any busy intersection, look around at the people behind the wheel playing with their device. And at any given time the auto industry could put in place a system to disable the use of a device as long as the car is not in park.
The federal government needs to take action on this and force the industry’s hand.
There is no call or text so important that it can’t wait to be answered from a parked car.
