i don't "text".
i communicate with people electronically in front of a computer with a big monitor, the old-fashioned way...
but from what i've seen, it's an addictive pastime.
it must be distracting.
walking around the south station area, i often have to dodge pedestrians who are too busy texting to watch where they're going.
i can see why the MBTA felt the need to take the drastic measure of completely removing the distraction from the picture...

Just last year, there was another crash that injured several people and killed the driver " again the cause texting
There was no evidence, that the deceased female driver had been texting.
I prob would not let a 22 year old sexually confused person with a bad driving record behind the wheel of my car. Certainly should have never been driving a public transportation vehicle and responsible or the lives of the people inside.
