Texting and driving should should carry the same penalties and fines as DUI.

Julie Walton, the driver, admitted to texting while she was driving.

Thankfully she didn’t crash into another vehicle; she only hurt herself.

At 61 yrs old, Walton should know better than to text and drive.

Texting while driving.

She admitted to texting while driving? Sigh !!
