We’ve all seen distracted drivers – someone texting, applying makeup, or reading the newspaper. Many states are trying to address the danger of distracted drivers, and some have passed harsh legislation against texting or talking on cell phones while driving.
What do you think is an appropriate punishment for distracted drivers? Do you have any suggestions for keeping drivers’ eyes on the road?
We want to hear your solutions to this problem. Put yourself on video and share your thoughts or, if you’re feeling especially creative, put together a PSA that you think addresses these issues.

It's not about a "police state".
It's about public and personal safety.
Texting, using a cell phone, applying make up, reading, or whatever it is one is doing while driving is a distraction to the driver and shouldn't be done.
If it takes changing or adding laws to get it done, then so be it.
