There are studies out there showing that talking on the phone while driving is equivalent to driving drunk. Some states are legislating against driving while talking on the phone. Turns out people are pretty unanimous in wanting texting while driving to be banned.
What I find ironic about all this is that almost everyone you talk to seems to agree with the above statements, but will say that they think they're an exception to the rule. "Oh - yeah, that's true, but I'm really careful when I'm talking on the phone."
Ha ha ha, right.
I'll go on the record and say I'm sure I'm not as safe when I'm talking on the phone while driving.
