Accident risk while texting: 23 times more likely

You are 23 times  more likely to cause an accident while texting than not. 

BUT while the California Highway Patrol handed out nearly 163,000 for people using cell phone while driving, they’ve only handed out 1,400 citations for texting.

WHY?  You can do it in your lap where the police can’t so easily spot.  And I don’t imagine helicopter  surveillance is can help too much either.
