It takes two to text while driving, according to court

Cars drive by a sign notifying of a new texting while driving law on Interstate 280 December 29, 2008 in San Francisco, California.

The dangers of texting while driving have been a growing legal issue for some time. But what about sending a text to a driver when you know that person is on the road? A ruling this week in a New Jersey Appeals Court could have implications on whether someone can be held responsible for that kind of texting. The specific case involved two texting teens and an older couple who were injured while riding on their motorcycle. Two judges of a the three-judge panel ruled that you don't have to be the one in the driver's seat to be open to legal action. Tom Zambito, a court reporter at The Star Ledger, explains the ruling.
