Just in time for the Honorable Ray LaHood's Distracted Driving Summit , California's AAA released a study showing that texting while driving has doubled since it was banned. (More on the study here.)
Presumably this is not what California's legistators had in mind. The AAA, perhaps predictably, called for more and harsher enforcement.
Let me be clear, texting while driving is a bad idea. Having said this, the solution to every problem is not regulation.
We posted a good piece last week that looks at possible solutions. You can read it here.
