The person that invents blocking texting while in motion will become a wealthy person. I'm quite annoyed on a daily basis when I see younger people texting while driving. You can easily tell when they do it. The vehicle tends to coast, sways left and right, goes well below the speed limit.

I've dodged several incidents where someone almost rear ended me.

Is it really that important to text while driving?

I don't text, well almost never. I don't like texting, and several other things, which brings us back, once again, to Joel.....

I hate texting and driving. I wish someone would start a business with vans that travel the roads filming people who text and drive. They could share the revenue of the fines with the states,cities or towns.
The penalties need to be severe. I'm sure there's alot of flaws in my business plan.
I have had several close calls from drivers texting.
Perhaps after the third offense they could cut of the drivers fingers :)

It seems to be going the other way. There are actually features of social media apps that encourage folks (drivers) to take selfies while the app uses the phone's GPS to compute and post how fast they are moving. People are dying. Crazy Dumb.

Yes! Why?

Bernie may have just tweeted out a new message

New weed may have just arrived, grab it quick

Manson may get parole, need to write parole board on how it was just free love

Food bank just got restocked, get there fast

Trump coming to town, grab the Mexican flags

New jobs available, avoid at all costs.

Feel free to add your own.

I don't always text and drive, but when I do I'm also simultaneously watching porn and making knuckle children.

This is why I use speech-to-text for texting when I'm driving. Unfortunately it's pretty gaffed, so sometimes people have no idea what I'm saying. That's fine tho.

Problem is passengers are not a problem.

I agree it is annoying. How many times a car in traffic almost causes an accident and you get alongside and she still has he face buried in the phone.
