  • its illegal here also and even before the law was passed I pulled over to answer or i would wait till i got where i was going. Funny thing today I saw a state trooper driving holding a phone to his ear, I guess they dont have to follow the laws and use hands free.

  • I have seen state troopers throw a huge Mcdonalds bag out the car window while driving down the road.

  • I have one of those hands free bluetooth thing built into my car, that answers my phone when it rings.

  • I'm not skilled enough to text while driving but my phone has a fairly decent speakerphone option, so I can set it on my dash and still talk and hear, while being hands free.

  • I talk while driving but I will wait till I am at a stop to dial. I do not text and drive. It is illegal here and I think just plain dangerous.

  • I talk while driving. I have bluetooth that I use, usually. I NEVER text and drive-- I wait til I'm at a stop to text-- and if I don't finish at the stop, i continue at the next one.

  • I never text and drive, and I only talk and drive if I absolutely have to (emergencies, and so forth)

  • No, i never do. But i freaking hate it when some one cuts me off or does something else stupid on the road and you look at them and they are blah blah blaying on their damn cell phone. Like why don't you pull over to the side and finish your stupid conversation. Yeah, its very annoying.
