I agree and disagree with some of that. I am not a drive and texter, but I do have to adjust my GPS and I do eat while driving. When I see somebody texting and driving I usually get over in the other lane.
Passed it several years ago here... It only covers electronic handheld devices to my knowledge... though evidently if you're swerving around while eating and driving I'm sure you can be ticketed under other laws.. undue care and attention, etc.
It's really bad here too.. so many people who can't drive with 100% focus are texting and driving..
