  •  Texting a driver is not pretty stupid..... (2+ / 0-)

    Texting can be, like email, a non-realtime interaction. I send a text when I can and the receiver reads it when they're able. Hence the parsing of the decision - I have to KNOW that the receiver will read it while driving and be distracted. How that can be proven I have no idea, unless by the content - "I know you're driving but answer me right now! I don't care how dangerous it is!" might qualify.
