Re: 'Entitled' to drive distracted (Aug. 31). People continue to ignore the laws about driving and texting or talking on a cellphone because the punishment, a fine, is a joke.
It has now been recognized that driving distracted causes more accidents resulting in injuries and deaths than drunk driving. Perhaps it's time to mete out the same punishment. Take away offenders' vehicles.
The offenders can then text and natter on their phones to their hearts' content, without harming law-abiding citizens.
Perhaps when they have been deprived of their vehicles for a time they might get the message.
