I think the general attitude is that texting and driving is no big deal. I admit to thinking that at one time myself. That attitude is wrong and it needs to change. Texting and driving is as dangerous as drinking and driving. Stick your phone in your pocket and leave it there while the car is in motion. It really is as simple as that.
This is a very powerful documentary on the dangers of texting and driving. I wish every driver could see it and take its message to heart.
