 I know that most states have laws in effect but lets be honest, I don't think it really stops people from texting and driving. I can look to my left or to my right at anytime and see someone texting while driving.

So honestly, do you text and drive? If not, do you at least glance at the phone if it rings or you get a text?

If my phone rings, it automatically comes in through the bluetooth in my van so I don't have to look at my phone.  I usually won't hear a text with my phone in my purse while I'm driving.

I keep my phone in the little under stereo console thingy in my car. If a call comes in it auto responds with i am driving and will return your call as soon as possible. Texts buzz through and i check them if i am waiting for something to come in. I have three very long lights i have to wait through so i will text or read during those lights but otherwise car mode is my friend. I dont feel obligated to answer.

I do not text and drive, and I refuse to be in a vehicle with someone who does. It's bad enough accidents happen for so many other reasons; texting while driving is a bad idea.

I look at inc. texts at stop lights. I don't answer them until I get where I am going. I talk while I drive if it's my husband.
