They should pass a law where if you see someone texting while driving, you are legally allowed to duct tape the person to their trunk, and then administer a Cleveland Steamer.

I wonder if driving with undue consideration, or however it's worded, would apply in this kind of situation.

HAHAHAH!!

I text while I am driving... get good at it and you don't even have to take your eyes off the road. So once again they are going to bring in a law that f's over everyone based on a few people who are stupid about it.

PS... even though I text while driving, I keep my eyes on the road and one hand on the wheel. I don't condone what that woman was doing.

I do it all the time, barely glance at the screen while doing it. Often wait if I'm near a lot of traffic or whatever though.

Do you pull off the road to change the track on the stereo, or change CDs? Do you pull over to talk to your passengers? When I'm on the highway from up here to Victoria for 2 hours with no stops, you bet I'll return txts.

That's a simple muscle memory thing though, and requires no prolonged mental effort to do. Texting is a constant thing, especially considering how long it takes to put together a sentence. I hate test messages at the best of times, but at the wheel is the worst. It takes you four presses of a button just to make a fucking S. Try texting the word Mississippi while driving and see if you don't crash. :P

Did anyone find it ironic that the viewer who sent in the video was video taping and driving at the same time? lol

well if you ever get in an accident, i hope texting isnt the cause of it.

i just dont get why everyone is in such a rush, will 5 minutes off the road to text/talk really cost you that much?

Some young gunz just don't get it, even when they are stuck in their car in the ditch their thumbs just keep going.... can't stop won't stop.





^The driver seemed pretty chill when I popped the door, sent txt's the whole time np. Probably telling his bff that he wouldn't brb.

I could drive with my knees on the hwy and not crash... but I don't.
