A New Jersey bus driver killed a baby while talking on a cell phone. That child is among 5,000 victims killed yearly by cell phone freaks who talk or text while driving.
Hitting these mobile phone morons with stiff fines and points on their licenses doesn't work. Here's something that will.
Cops should confiscate the phone, iPad, or any other mobile device used by distracted drivers. Their licenses should also be suspended. That's the only punishment these digital dumbbells understand.
Confiscation will force these idiots to pay full attention behind the wheel. It's the same as taking a gun from a dangerous criminal. The adage “talk is cheap"
doesn't apply to distracted drivers; their talk and texts cost lives.
