Stop Texting While Driving!!!!!

There have been thousands of accidents each year that occur because people choose to text while driving. As of August 2009, only 17 states and the District of Columbia now ban text messaging for all drivers. This need to be a law in all states. It's becoming a problem and people are losing their lives because careless drivers choose to text while they're driving instead of waiting to text or pulling his or her car over to the side of the road. (If it's that important). I'm not trying to die or bury a loved one because of someone else's irresponsibility. Let's get this signed so it shows that it's becoming a huge problem in the world and we want it to stop. There should be a fine in all states and after too many warnings, the violator should be forced to surrender his or her license. Please don't wait until it happens to a loved for you to stand up.

      How many people will have to get hurt or die? There are enough distractions already while driving without texting!

      Actually counted while driving to work, yes i know it was probably as bad as texting, but literally 9 out of 10 people were either on the phone or texting and that included one young lady going 75 in the fast lane with the phone on top of the steering wheel... texting...no joke. Please stop this before it hurts or kills someone I love!

      It is dangerous and inconsiderate to text while driving.

      Because I have witnessed the results of texting while driving and have personal knowledge of what it feels like when someone you care about is hurt in a car accident.
