I won't even mention texting while driving which is in a whole other category of WTF.
I have texted while driving on one of the old phones with a numeric keypad; it is not so hard once you learn all the key positions. Of course I did it while in a traffic jam to warn my wife; the vehicle was almost completely stopped. I will admit that it increases risk, but at that point risk was negligible.
There is a similar trick on the movie The Departed, but without driving -- too easy.
The problem with regulations is that they are always too generic or too specific; using a mobile is banned even when stopped or moving at 10 km/h. But if hundreds of lives are saved per year then it is well worth it.
