How do we stop texting while driving?

Yesterday on Facebook, a story brought out a surprisingly large reaction from users.

We asked “How do we stop texting while driving?” while linking to a story about a woman who was charged with manslaughter for texting while driving before a fatal crash.

People had some good ideas.

untitledI guess what struck me though, were those that said maybe it can’t be stopped.

They have a point: we outlaw texting while driving, drinking and driving, speeding, but that doesn’t stop people from doing it.

So can anything be done? Should technology take care of it?

I don’t know.

What do you think – can texting while driving be stopped?

Ziosk-ing

This week in cool Valley restaurant news:

The Red Robin in the Monroe Marketplace got “ziosks” aka tablets which allow you to play games, listen to music, order food or pay your bill from your table.

It even prints your receipt!

Here’s my sister using it:

Our waitress said they Just got them Tuesday.

You have to pay for the games and extras, but even the regular features were cool.

Have you tried the Ziosks? What did you think?
