At risk of making a political argument:

The act of texting and driving should not be illegal. The consequences
of doing so, might be. If you can text and drive because your brain has
sufficient bandwidth to do so, then more power to you. If you cream a
bus full of school children, then you need to be punished accordingly.

Apparently the consequences of irresponsible driving are not
sufficiently bad to handle your vehicle responsible. Or perhaps there's
too many ways to get out, because there's too many laws that "protect"
you from doing something wrong.

"I didn't know I wasn't supposed to floss and drive."
