Take a note from the Europeans -- I've NEVER seen anyone on a cell phone (or, heaven forbid, texting) in France or Germany. The only on-site phones are used by taxi drivers and they're hands-free. Otherwise, people actually DRIVE.
Personally I think that for a first offense the driver will face a 30 day AUTOMATIC suspension and a $500 fine.
Second offense, LOSE the car (seriously) and a one year suspension.
Third offense . . . hmmmm, do you smell prison?
As for drunks, I've had my attitude about drunks ever since taking a dead child out of a car, hit by a drunk driver, who was so drunk he didn't even know he had been in an accident. I got pretty good at catching drunks after that . . . but my feeling is that:
a) First Offense -- six weeks in a Marine Corps operated Boot Camp (located, naturally, in South Texas) - three year suspension (if you're caught driving on a license suspended due to DUI you spend the remainder of the three years in a State Prison) and loss of the car.
b) Second Offense -- permanent suspension of license (forever and ever, thank you very much) and three years imprisonment (mandatory).
It would be pretty brutal for the first few months and then NOBODY would do it, TOO risky.
