when I'm behind the wheel. I have been begging my family members (who will remain nameless)

Oklahoma is a step closer to banning drivers from texting. House lawmakers are set to vote on a measure which would impose a steep fine.
House Bill 3250, by state Rep. Sue Tibbs and state Rep. Danny Morgan, would penalize any person who is operating a motor vehicle on a street or highway while using a cellular telephone or electronic communication device to write, send or read a text-based communication while the motor vehicle is in motion with a fine of up to $1,000.
“This is an important measure that hopefully will encourage drivers to pull off the road to a safe area if they must text someone,” said Tibbs. “This could save people from serious injuries or death. There’s no reason for innocent lives to be lost because a text couldn’t wait.
Does your state have a law against texting?
Let's take it a step further, don't dial or talk on the phone while driving.
If your cell phone rings while driving just wait until you're off the
road before you check to see who called.
Okay, I'll stop preaching now!
But seriously, take the pledge!
