Texting Bans Make Roads More Dangerous

There is absolutely no qualm that texting and driving is dangerous. The banning of such an activity is an attempt towards preventing drivers from engaging in accident-causing distractions; unfortunately, as noted by a study reported in this techdirt article, these banning laws have simply resulted in more accidents. People who want to text anyway -- especially unskilled young drivers -- begin holding their phones lower to avoid detection, making it that much more difficult to control the car and be aware of their surroundings.
