Nearly 50% of drivers aged between 18 and 24 texted while driving, the research said. Now I cant quite believe that people in this age bracket are so stupid as to think the practice is not dangerous.
Anyway, the penalties are now a little more harsh (a small fine and 3 points on the license). When people start losing licenses after accumulating points, the word of mouth will hopefully get around and make scummy people think about what they are doing. However, I think we should be even harder on those who give little thought to those around them!
