Do You Text ,Talk and Drive?

Why? Headsets are cheap. I have a 20 dollar headset and talk a lot to DH that way, as far as text never while on the move and even that is voice activated. New law here is getting worse cost wise ,with points on driving record. FYI you will not get a job if that happens

  • Heck no, and I can't stand people that do. Wish I could pop their tires when I see them doing that. They have no consideration for other drivers or pedestrians.

  • I don't like to be on the phone in anyway, shape, or form when I'm driving. I've been in 2 accidents and it scares me way too much.

  • I do talk and drive. IT is not illegial where I live. I find it less destracting than having a passenger in my car. Besides, I have no problem droping the phone if needed. I do not text and drive.

  • i dont text and drive but i am guilty of talking and driving. why wont you get a job for texting or talking while driving. its not a felony i dont think its even considered a felony traffic citation. and traffic tickets are not checked in background checks unless your applying for a driving position
