I can understand — though I don’t agree with — people who defend using cellphones while driving saying it’s no more distracting than fooling with the radio or CD player. I’m baffled, however, by the fact that banning on texting while driving is even a matter for discussion.
That being said, the Philadelphia PD has a new plan to “warn” anybody they see texting while walking. Only a warning. No plans down the road for this cash-starved city to give actual tickets. If you believe that, I think the Ben Franklin Bridge is for sale.
