Re: “Texting while driving now biggest hazard for teens” (TNT, 5-10).
It is time to give stiff penalties for texting and driving.
Teens are getting killed or injured more by driving and texting – more than by using alcohol or drugs. They aren’t only taking a risk of injury to themselves, but they are endangering other drivers who are obeying the laws.
If anyone – teens or older drivers – get caught texting and driving they should pay a $500 fine and lose their license for at least a year. Teens should pay the fine and lose their license until they are 21 years old.
It is time to take action and protect people’s lives. Driving is a privilege, not a right.
