Nevada lawmakers are aiming at criminalizing text messaging while deriving. Seven states have taken the initiative and have out lawed text messaging while driving. Some other states outlaw text messaging for younger drivers.
Text messaging can be very distracting when driving a car. Many other things can be distracting as well including listening to music, talking on a mobile phone, eating, having a conversation with a friend in the car, and many other things. Text messaging is unique in that it requires the typing of a message and the reading of messages in return. Text messaging can be a rapid fire type of act. Ask most teenagers these days who have made text messaging both an art, skill, social tool, and social weapon. I believe that outlawing text messaging while driving is a good safety measure that will ultimately safe the lives of drivers, passengers, pedestrians, children and many other innocent victims of such conduct.
