Maybe they do! lol!
We've had a lot of teeny boppers killing themselves in MN this summer cos they all pile in the car and everyone is texting (even the driver) and swerving into oncoming traffic. Making a law against it doesn't really do anything cos when you're dead a ticket doesn't mean much. Not saying "scared straight" is the only way but it may give kids with a conscience pause to think but the others are unfortunately probably still doomed.
Thanks for fixing it!

I know that phones could be put on speaker. That minimizes the distraction. People also use earbuds. Something I don't hear people talk about is switching CD's and/or radio presets. Those also take the attention away for a second or two.
The cellphone thing was also what precipitated the Will Smith movie, called, "7lbs".
Ahhh! I just got out of driver's ed where we saw tons of videos like this... It's operation "scare teens into staying alive"
