No, it's not worth the risk of killing others and leaving my kids without a mother.

LOL How do you know if it's an emergency, though?

I don't text nd drive. If I'm texting at a red light, I'll quit when it turns green. I'll take a call once in a while, but I'm trying to break the habit since it's illegal now, even with a headset.

Quoting poshkat:

No. I only answer if it's an emergency too.

Only if I'm at a red light.  If it turns green while I'm typing, I put the phone down.

Just because you are the only person in YOUR car doesn't mean there are other people on the road your careless decisions could end up killing. No one gets it until they kill someone or someone they love is killed... So my post is pointless.

Yes..if my mom or DH texts me i'll text back but i use the speech to text thing on my phone..so sometimes they get something silly.

If I'm going to be driving somewhere at night, when it's raining or navigating a bunch of busy streets then I turn on Drive Smart.

If i get a text it will automatically send them a text saying I'm driving. So cool.

If they call more than once or they're blowing up my phone with texts and calls. I will also answer the phone if it's an international phone call from my mom. I'll tell her to hold on and find a place to pull over.

Ok you feel the need to chew me out fine. I don't text often when I am driving and when I do I use the speech to text feature.
