Washington state, in the process of banning cell-phone use in cars without a hands-free device, has also banned text messaging while driving, imposing a fine of $101 (or, as we used to say on our old typewriters, l0l) on violators. The ban on texting goes into effect at the beginning of 2008; the hands-free law will kick in the following July.

I suppose someone has been observed Driving While Texting, but evidently my imagination is insufficient to call up an image thereof.

Or did you mean someone without tentacles?
