quote: Oh, and saying things like "you deserve to be run over" to someone who holds a different opinion from you doesn't make your argument more convincing either.
quote: Obviously you don't know the feeling when someone you love is forcibly taken from you because someone else made a stupid decision.
quote: When someone texts and drives at the same time, they are bound to kill someone innocent.
quote: Sorry but the statistics say otherwise. Put the emotions aside and actually think about this.
quote: This is pitiful. Of course I do. So what? If you think dealing with grief means involving the entire country and making laws, you aren't coping very well. That's one of our biggest weaknesses today, nobody seems to have the ability to look past their own problems.
quote: In a country with 300+ million citizens, the amount of actual deaths caused by textdriving are stupidly low. And don't hand me some crap about "if a law can prevent just one death, it's worth it." This isn't even ABOUT preventing deaths, it's just more politics and job-justification and money grubbing. Calling something that would fall within the margin of error on most studies an "epidemic" is laughable.
quote: Plus, if you don't text and drive, the law won't even affect you.
