Noted, when you can't get people to wear seat belts how can you get them to stop using phones.

It's very sad that so many live & die by text. I only use text as a utility not the basic means of communication. Mostly I send texts to my own email to remember to do something. I don't drive but using the cell phone at all let alone texting while driving is completely wrong.

52% admitted to texting or doing e-mails while driving.......so you have to wonder how many more did so, yet refused to admit it.

Thanks Cal..... people need to stay off cell phone's when they are driving. They cause TOO many accidents. You know that when you are driving and talking on the phone you are NOT paying attention to what you are doing. I think talking on the phone while driving should be BANNED everywhere. If you need to use the cell phone, STOP somewhere and use it. You are taking other peoples lives in your hands when you do this. Have some consideration for others. Don't be stupid and take the chance that you could kill someone. NOTHING is that important that you have to be on the phone while driving and possibly take someone's life. Think before you dial, it could save someone's life and possibly your own!!!!

I don't understand, after years of trying to show people that it is not safe to do, people still think they can multi-task behind the wheel.
