Texting Law Could Be Hard To Enforce

Texting while driving is bad right? Of course it is. And we're all against it right? Of course we are. But even if a law is passed banning texting while driving in Idaho, how is it going to be enforced? That's the question posed by this article on the 'Idaho Freedom Foundation' website.

It points out that unless a police officer actually sees you texting, which is tough to do from the vantage point of the low cars that officers usually drive, they can't prove that's what you were doing. So you could say that adjusting the radio station is what caused you to swerve. Or you could be honest I guess, but how many people are going to do that when there's a big ticket on the line?

So what's your opinion?
