Law Would Rely On Drivers' Confessions

The Idaho House Judiciary Committee yesterday voted unanimously to introduce yet another bill banning texting-while-driving. Two similar bills failed in early 2010. This one is different though- it would rely heavily on driver honor to get citations. Law enforcement officials would need admission of use of electronic devices in order to hand out a distracted driving ticket. Really? IdahoReporter.com has the details.

So what are your thoughts? Will a law like this have any teeth or will people just deny they were fiddling with their gadgets?
