You already know you're not supposed to be texting while driving—or watching TV and driving, or talking on the phone while driving, or pretty much anything else while driving—but in South Wales the fine for getting caught sending an SMS while on the road just jumped from £30 to £1000 (that's about $1,800). Even despite their long-range texter-finder cameras and tight road monitoring, ultimately we don't see how they can really enforce this law (what, you can't text with one hand without looking?).
