The U.S. has finally banned texting for truckers and bus drivers. But what about banning ALL drivers? In one recent article it stated that over 200,000 accidents happen while people are texting. Why are we as a nation so reluctant to ban texting for everyone while operating a car?

One article states that:

Now, bus drivers and truck drivers who are caught texting will face fines up to $2,750. It remains to be seen whether such measures will become standard for all U.S. drivers.

If a trucker or bus driver causes an accident while illegally texting they could face jail time.

We are a nation of cowards. We don’t have the guts to ban texting for all drivers and require hands free cell phone calls.
