I am horrified by the sight of people driving down the 202 and other freeways while text messaging against their steering wheels. I cannot imagine what could be so important that could not wait until you are at your next stop to communicate with someone else. There are a number of signs and street bridges over the top of the lanes on the freeway. I am usually against government intrusion in our privacy, but it would be an idea to have cameras take random pictures looking down through the windshield of cars driving underneath and additionally getting a shot of their license plate. Sad as it is, I am sure they would catch multiple people daily texting while driving. Hand out a few fines, suspend a few licenses and we would see this trend diminish quickly.
