  • Since I am guilty of texting and driving (sometimes) I'm gonna say drinking and driving is worse LOL!!

  • If your texting at a red light...whatever. I don't know how anyone can actually text and drive, that just doesn't seem possible. Like driving blindfolded. Drinking is relative to how much. I'm going to go with drinking because I'm assuming you mean impaired(not a glass of wine at dinner).

  • Drinking and driving. Both are wrong and stupid, but at least when you are texting you have the option to stop texting and pay attention to the road. If you are already drunk you can't just stop being drunk and start driving better.

  • drinking and driving.. is worse.. I was almost killed by a drunk driver..
    although I don't agree with texting and driving either.. most of the accidents are fender benders, where as drinking and driving tends to be more fatal all the way around.

  • Drinking and driving is obviously worse. I don't even have to look at my keys to send text messages and can in about 10 seconds so thats not a huge deal for me I'm not someone who has to stare at my phone and hunt for keys. I don't text and drive but I can't see how you could possibly compare the two.

  • omgosh...i never do either...i just had to tell you though, I heard this thing on local news talking about a new cell phone that was released to market where you could turn the camera on and leave it on so that while you are texting and WALKING you can still see where you are going without having to look up!!! OMG !!!! unreal !!!! this is all because some dumbass woman walked out in front of truck while texting and was killed !

  • DRINKING & DRIVING for sure, But texting and driving is up their too because you could kill someone cause your not paying atttention to the road. I think people need to be served tickets if caught on a phone while driving.
