jenrgw How Should States Develop Distracted Driving Laws

We often write about states that pass distracted driving laws. Each state has its own unique law that prohibits certain behavior and imposes certain penalties for that behavior.  These laws are passed through the normal democratic process and thus, to some extent, are created from a series of compromises.  However, how should distracted driving laws be created?

According to the Governors Highway Safety Association, each state should conduct research and base its law on objective data.  If you are interested in the objective data behind your own state law you can try reading the legislative history of the law or contacting your state representative or senator for more information.
