Pay heed to driving, not distractions

Thank you for publishing the Nov. 15 editorial “Text alert” and Kirk Walters’ editorial cartoon about how eating while driving increases the chance of an accident.

In my job as a driving instructor, I see too many people driving while distracted. It is way past time that something should be done about it. I can’t begin to tell of the number of near misses my students and I see.

A ban on texting, cell phone use, eating, drinking, and even smoking while driving should be enacted.
