News item:  Connecticut legislators debate strategies for reducing the use of hand-held mobile devices while driving. 

Seriously?  As mentioned in this place on more than one occasion, the solution is easy.  Instead of fining people $150 for talking/texting on a cell phone in their vehicles, hit them where it hurts-their bank accounts.  How about fines in excess of $1000 and increasing by 100% for each additional offense?  Over the top?  Not if you're serious.

Absolutely correct! If it's true that texting while driving is worse than driving under the influence, then why not treat it that way?
I'm with you 100% on this one!
