have you ever text while you drove and caused an accident or came close to being in an accident? is it illegal in your state to text? if so, do obey that law?

Oh, my god. I hate seeing people texting while they're driving. Even by schools! It was horrible. Two out of every twenty or so people I see are texting and three out of ten are on their phones!

Well, I used to do that. But I have realized that it is really dangerous. There was a time that I almost bump a vehicle ahead of me. Because of this, I do not text anymore when I drive. I just pull over if ever I want to read a message most especially when I am expecting a very important message. But in most cases, I just read all the messages when I am not driving anymore, that is when I arrive at my destination.

NO WAY!!!! First off, I don't drive because I'm almost blind, but even if I did drive, there's no way I would even talk on my phone, let alone text. No way. My husband would never even answer the phone while driving either (when he could drive) and texting was a foreign concept when he had the vision to drive. If it was around then, he wouldn't have dne it either.
