Drive now, text later

Paso RoblesNovember 29, 2012 

A woman recently struck and killed a pedestrian while texting and driving in Nipomo. Another life lost. What was so important that you have to break the law and drive and text?

It only happens to somebody else. It could be you at any moment.

With all the brilliant minds in this world, why can’t someone make it so that if you are behind the wheel and pull out a phone and text, it freezes or turns off — something that would cause either the car or phone to turn off.

These drivers should be made big examples as far as penalty goes.
