The Glendale News-Press ran an article today about a 20 year old woman was has been arrested for causing the death of an older man while she was texting and driving. Police state that she ran a stop sign while texting. The article reports that her arrest was 3 months after the accident and will be charged with felony gross vehicular manslauter.
This is the first such case in LA where an arrest has been made since the law was changed a couple of summers ago. People still aggressively drive and use their cells for calls and texting. Is this charge enough? Should there be additional penalties such as time to serve for using a cell phone while driving? What say you?
