I must not be as cynical about people as I pretend, because I have a hard time understanding why so many people do something as self-evidently idiotic as texting while driving. I suspect that, if you asked those people whether they would read a newspaper, knit, or play the piano while driving (none of which, as far as I know, are specifically prohibited, but all of which would surely be covered by wreckless driving laws), they would respond with an indignant "Of course not!" The only comfort I can take from this is that it provides a fine empirical refutation of rational choice theory.
