how about operating an Ipod, which if you have an Iphone or a BB you can say you were changing songs provided its plugged into the car...

How are they going to know if you are looking at the time or reading an SMS?
olny $20? For real? Sounds like more of a revenue generating act than a law to protect people.
It's hard to see how this would work. How would they actually police all drivers? And some people would get through, as not everyone can be checked 24/7.

Wow... 3rd Degree reckless endangerment usually carries prison time of more than a year. I don't think a $20 fine will dissuade any vapid airhead who thinks they just have to text while they're driving (and probably spends more than $20 on texting anyway).
What part of "Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn" don't you understand?
What is amazing is that they had to enact a law against texting-while-driving. This should be a no-brainer!

The Onion...what a cool website! Thanks for the link, 3vi1.
Man I had stuff to do. Just wasted the last hour on the onion.
Hehe... sorry guys. :p I've been reading that site for years, and I suddenly remembered that article.
Oh well, I don't care. I don't talk on the phone or text while driving.
