Lots Of People Text Message While Driving
from the not-good dept
A new study in the UK points out that over one-quarter of people surveyed say they use a mobile phone while driving – something that will become illegal in the UK later this year (though, many say they’ll ignore the law). That’s not the scary part, though. The study found that 10% of people surveyed say they write text messages while driving. To me, that’s insane. At least if you’re on the phone, you’re keeping your eyes on the road. However, the write a text message you have to repeatedly remove your eyes from the road. The fact that 10% of the population sees no problem with it is quite scary.

Some people who text message quite often can triple-tap without looking down. I’m not advocating the practice, just sharing.

Can they read the response without looking down as well?
I’ve seen people driving while reading the newspaper. I think getting caught doing something like this should be a manditory 30 to 60 days suspended license, possibly even impounding of vehicle during that timeframe.

Remember back in school when the teachers would have you write sentences on the blackboard when you were bad ?
I think the offending SMS texter should be forced to sit in the police office and text the message: ” I will not text message while driving ” 1000 times … prefferably to tele-markets who do not follow the ” Do Not Call ” list …
That oughta do it 🙂
i love you ss
