    No! It is the responsibility of the driver NOT to answer the phone!!! This just shows how corrupt out country is... Wanna make money, pay a lawyer and find ways to word situations to your benefit, then file a lawsuit...Yeah high five America!(I'm being very sarcastic with the high five)

    Hell, no! My family texts me often when they know I'm on the road. It's up to me to know that I must wait until I pull over to look at the phone.

    For SENDING? No. I own a cell phone. There is no force on this planet that obligates me to respond to it every times it buzzes or rings... what more, it has an "off" button. The responsibility lies with the driver.

    No one's pointing a gun at you telling to reply. And if the sender is so shallow that they get angry that you didn't respond because you feel uncomfortable texting them while driving, then they're not worth keeping, anyway.

    It is not the responsibility of the person sending the text to know or not whether someone is driving, and even if they do, it is the driver that makes the decision to acknowledge the text.

    People need to be responsible for their own actions. He certainly had a choice whether or not to read the txt. While she may not win any awards for being a good friend or girlfriend, she shouldn't be held responsible for his actions. this would be different if she were physically present in the car or on the road by him and causing distractions. But this just seems to be a bit of an over-reach.
