U.K, Brings Down the Hammer on Texting whilst Driving

This weblog maintains that motorists who text while operating their vehicle represent the greatest threat to the safety of cyclists. I’ll have more on that soon. But readers will find a story in today’s New York Times about the strict law in the UK that gives jail time to text-ers involved in fatal accidents.

Its a sad story all around. Drivers in the UK are aware for the law before they text, and must take responsibility for their illegal driving. When will drivers in the US be held accountable to the danger they are causing by texting?
