Do you think texting while waiting at red lights acceptable?

Agreed 100%, JThomp42! I believe the accident/death statistics prove what you said, too, "...they are weaving and look like an impaired driver". They don't think about it until after they've killed someone, I guess. Horrible, but sadly realistic.
I think this is a great law. I get tired of self-important people endangering others when they could just pull over.
I agree. Actually, I wish the law was tougher. I too am sick of people who don't give a second thought about endangering the lives of innocent people.
I'm 99% sure USA statistics agree, Tusitala Tom. It's illegal to text for some/all drivers in some states, but should be in all. It's really bad, sad, and more preventable than drunk driving (impaired judgment). You could kill someone! Unforgivable!

a lot of other people thought they could too and they died doing it. I hope you have better luck.
How do you turn corners with your elbows??
I had to read your comment a couple of times because I was not sure if you were trying to be sarcastic. I am really hoping this was an attempt at comedy. Either way- be safe!!!
No accidents while texting yet. And corners, you can't text while turning or changing lanes. You have to be insane to do that.
I had a tyre blow out while driving about six months ago. Glad I wasn't trying to control the steering wheel with my elbows. If I had been, I'd be dead.
I don't text while driving. It's not hard to pull over to the side of the road to text. :)
I also was looking for some dry sarcasm lol. There's a dang voice-to-text button. Use it.
Oh, that would be helpful. Need to find that button...
LBurmaster, PLEASE stop texting and driving! What if you killed or crippled someone--a family or baby--because of texting? Find a safer way/time to talk, please, for everyone's sake! Use alternatives--follow Tusitala Tom's great car-mobile rules!
