Letter to the Editor: Don't scapegoat drivers who text

So here is another letter to the editor--this one is about texting and enforcement.  It's in response to this editorial on June 10 in the Salem News.

"To the editor:

The Salem News is all cheers for “tough enforcement” against “texters” and all other “erratic drivers,” but in reality, they can’t help but fixate on those cellphone users. They are scapegoating cellphone users. For whatever reason, people want to rally against emergent cultural artifacts rendered possible through technology. The same thing happened with film, radio, comic books, video games, etc. They simply don’t get it, and rather than understand it, they attack it."
