What concerns me about this bill is that is a typical "feel good" bill that does not have empirical data to support its worthiness. While you "can't help but think" that this bill would do any good, there clearly is contradictory data that contradicts such intuitive legislation. That said, I absolutely agree with your concern about inconsiderate and dangerous drivers, and can only hope that this bill will lead to a recognition of the dangers of cell phone use and texting while driving.

Are there better solutions? Perhaps. Certainly, if an accident is caused by a driver's inattention, that driver should (i) have his/her license suspended for a significant period of time; and (ii) be held fully liable for all damages. And , insurance companies can start taking a stronger role in educating their insured drivers.

Look at smoking and seatbelts. One has been proven to be bad for our health. The other has proven to save lives. Yet, we still have many people who smoke and who resent having to buckle up. How long will it take for us very human-type beings to start showing our intelligence and start being responsible. Instead, we will always look for a victim. And, we will rarely look in the mirror and see that "the enemy is us."

Wildelakemike nails it.
