Text Messaging While Driving

Christopher T. Hurley of the Illinois Car and Truck Accident Lawyer Blog has a post about calls in Chicago for a ban on text messaging.

I believe 18 states have a texting ban while driving at least to some degree. Who would vote against such a ban? Is there any doubt that eventually text messaging while driving will be banned in every jurisdiction? So why don’t we just cut to the chase and ban it now and maybe save a few lives in the process?
