There was an article I read today and it was talking about how much tickets costs are if teens that are driving is caught using a cell phone. “Teens caught on the phone will be fined $20 to $40 for the first offense and $50 to $100 for the second offense in a year (Anderson 1).” I know it might sound harsh but I think that anyone should be fined just as much as a DUI ticket is. Texting while driving is just as dangerous as driving under the influence. I know right now it’s hard for police officers to even declare who is really texting and driving and not just making a quick phone call or changing a song on the Ipod which of course looks like an Iphone. All we can do is wait for the advancements and greater ideas to track down people who do text and drive.
