No, It is a very dangerous thing to do, especially when you are in such a hurry and you are trying to do it and can't hardly keep your eyes on the road.

No I don't text while driving it is actually worse to text and drive than drink and drive!!! Of course depending on number of drinks! but alcohol is still legal to consume! in most states it is now ILLEGAL to text while driving!

Nope.  It takes me forever to text when I'm not driving so trying to do it while driving would probably kill me.  I do use my blue tooth capability to give me hands free functionality with my cell phone while driving, though.  I do think cell phones are a huge and dangerous distraction for any driver but it's so hard not to use it, isn't it?

Bad enough talking on the phone which is illegal if your don't use it the correct way  Now texting when you kill somebody then it will be to late they should making it as bad of a ticket as a drunk driving ticket at least the drunk is trying to pay attentionn to the road before the law catches up with him. :thumbsup:

this site shows just how much cell phone laws are increasing.
i'm not a fan of stamping a law on everything, but it makes
sense.

I don't even like to look at a msg when I'm driving, much less text; but I have done it, a few times a couple years ago.
My daughter wrecked the car I bought her texting. Glad she wasn't hurt. I don't text while driving anymore.

I am guilty I do text while I am driving. I aquired a skill of memorizing all the buttons on my phone so that when I text I don't have to look at my phone. I know I sound weird but i can't help it. The person I text the most is my sister who lives in Arizona. I don't get to see her everyday so when she texts me I feel like I have to text her right away. A bad habit that I got to break I know it.

I try not to do it but I do sometimes. I seen that video of texting while driving and it scared me. It should be illegal bc people already have enough distractions as it is.

 BAD! BAD! BAD! BAD! IDEA. think it is a bad idea you are putting yourself indanger the people in the car with you in danger. and every one eles on the road with you in danger.if it is that important pull over or have someone in the car do it for you.
