Personally, I'd make it $500 for a first offense, $750 for the second, $1000 for the third, jail time after that.

It is beyond absurd here. I've never seen anything like it -- everyday I see people with their cell phones literally on their steering wheels, texting & driving, doing 70+ miles and hour -OR- texting & driving, going 50 in the 70 lane. Very dangerous!!

In other states where the law is enforced the laws, wow, miracle, people stopped texting and driving! And everyone managed just fine.

By far, Alaska has the strongest penalty: Up to $10,000 and a year in prison for the first offense. California has the smallest minimium fine—only $20 per offense. Four states: Arizona, Montana, South Dakota, and South Carolina, have no bans or penalties for texting while driving.

I believe it is $339 in NJ, according to the crackdown warning I saw....Me it should be $1000
PULL the hell over if call or text is that urgent that it can't wait until you get where you are going
