New York Prosecutor Wants Harsher Texting While Driving Penalties

Nassau County District Attorney Kathleen Rice has rolled out a pretty extensive plan to stop texting while driving. She even went as far as asking Apple, Google and Microsoft come up with a way to disable texting while driving.

DA Rice sent a letter today to the heads of Apple, Google, Microsoft and Blackberry urging the companies to take the technologies behind various existing third-party apps to block texting during driving and incorporate them directly into smartphone operating systems, thereby vastly expanding the reach of such technologies into the hands of hundreds of millions of users.
