Tennessee isnt exempt from the Cagers with phones... its not as bad since i have moved so far away from Nashville. but on my trips back its always bad, in the last month i have had a teenager almost use me as a speed bump in a big red truck, 3 cars merge over on me, two crossing the double yellow, and one almost clip my front tire doing 40 in a 10mph zone here at work while i was pulling out of a parking space very slowly.
Like i told my students back when i taught for the MSF "every day you turn the key on that bike remember, everyone out there wants to murder you, so never stop paying attention and always ride defensively"

Here in Ontario, Canada, we have fines for distracted driving. Although I still see people texting and driving despite the facts below.

As of September 1, 2015 the fines and penalties for distracted driving will increase.

If convicted of distracted driving, a fully licenced driver (holder of Class A, B, C, D, E, F, G) or a hybrid driver (holder of a full-class licence and a novice licence such as Class G and M1) will receive:

-a fine of $400, plus a victim surcharge and court fee, for a total of $490 if settled out of court
-fine of up to $1,000 if you receive a summons or fight your ticket
-three demerit points applied to your driverís record
If convicted of distracted driving, a novice driver (subject to the Graduated Licensing program) will be subject to escalating sanctions:

-first occurrence will result in a 30-day licence suspension
-second occurrence will result in 90-day licence suspension
-licence cancellation and removal from the Graduated Licensing System for a third occurrence
Novice drivers will not be subject to demerit points.

Drivers who endanger others because of any distraction, including hand-held and hands-free devices, may still be charged with Careless Driving under the Highway Traffic Act or even Dangerous Driving under the Criminal Code of Canada.

Both charges carry heavy fines and penalties, if convicted, including 6 demerit points, fines of up to $2,000 and /or a jail term of six months, and up to two-year licence suspension in the case of Careless Driving. Dangerous Driving is a criminal offence and includes jail terms of up to five years.

Canada
Someone with a cigarette in one hand and a coffee in the other crowding my lane yesterday on snow covered roads
One of those times I wish I had a automatic center punch in my possession
