Texting should have never existed in the first place . I think cell phones should be banned from everywhere . Burn/smash the dam things . We did great with out them in the good ol days .

Today I see even vary young kids texting to the kid next to them . They should be playing in a sand box in stead with wooden toys .

Not a bad idea, but I can't help but think the "state" never misses a trick to make money. How about instead of a fine, make them do community service? That is, if they don't get hit by a car first. And if they get hit by a car, how about making them pay for a shrink for the driver who got sucked into their stupidity? I hit a kid on a bike once, totally his fault, he separated from the bike and went between my wheels, but the bike was stuck in my tow bar. All he got was abrasions, but it could have turned out to be something horrible. Still haunts me 10 years later!
