    I have friends not young ones either who insist they can multi-task and "text safety" I don't know WTF that actually means but its bullshit. Nobody's life is so intensive that they need to send a text while operating a vehicle.

    Although as I was walking out of work the other morning ( I work nights at a hospital ) I realized every single person walking in was either texting or talking on their cell. Everybody. I am not one of those "technology get off my lawn types" I have a smartphone but I really think people are not getting the message on this and maybe when we allow lawsuits that involved targeting people indirectly involved in the accidents people might pay attention. Or who knows they will just send texts to one another saying texting and driving is dangerous... while they are driving.
