Where I live, texting and driving is illegal.

As it should be.

Do you text and drive?

Thoughts?

Never.  No text is that important that it needs my attention while I am driving.  I also try not to answer my cell while driving.

I used to, too. But I started working at a collision center 8 months ago, and if you saw what gets towed in from texting and driving it would definitely make you rethink picking up that phone behind a wheel.

Its illegal where I live, but even if it wasn't I couldn't do it.  I have to really look at the phone to get a text out.

I did for the first time yesterday but it was really important and I did it at stoplights. Never while actually driving.

No. I did before I had kids, but that was before touch screens and I had a flip phone, so I could send mad texts without even looking at my phone. A skill that was lost with the touch screen. I wouldn't anyway.

 No, I barely know how to use the phone while on the couch.
