States Might Soon Be Putting Distracted Drivers In Jail

You see distracted driving more often than not these days. People are on their phone calling, texting, using GPS systems. But it’s getting more and more dangerous and states are starting to crack down. Currently most states only hand out fines (some as low as $20) for drivers pulled over while distracted. But states like Alaska and Utah already have laws in place where distracted driving could land the driver in jail for 90 days. And some states are starting to follow along. Do you think this is an appropriate punishment?
