Texting while driving…Britain answers the call

Check out this interesting article from the NY Times.

A 22 year old woman that had been texting her friends prior to hitting a vehicle that was stopped on the side of the road and was sentenced to 21 months in prison.

Ms. Curtis was sentenced in February under 2008 British government directives that regard prolonged texting as a serious aggravating factor in 'death by dangerous driving' — just like drinking — and generally recommend four to seven years in prison.
