    Pretty much.

    Anyone who doesn't think you can talk on the phone while driving must have a very short commute to work.

    I put the phone on speaker or pull over. In the city amost every time i see a driver weaving, cutting someone off, going out of turn at a 4 way stop or just going though an itersection without looking they are on a cell phone. It is annoying and im suprised there are not more accidents because of it.

    Driving this afternoon, saw a woman on the back of a motercycle using her husbands back to hold her phone up against so she could text away.

    Haha, yup. I don't know how unsafe it really was, but it just looked incredibly odd.

    In New York - it's illegal to talk and text while driving, both....Yet, you cannot go out on a 5 minute drive without seeing 25 people talking on their phones etc. Tests have shown they are both highly dangerous. I dunno, maybe I'm just getting old, but when I'm driving and I see some people yappin' away on the phone, not paying attention, essentially putting my, and others safety on the line, it irritates me.

    What's the difference b/w talking on a hands free phone and singing along to a radio?

    Commute down a 75 MPH Interstate Hwy and watch other drivers, police and most every 18 wheeler you pass are talking on the phone, manual or via bluetooth, daily.

    Texting is less but still it's everyday here in the Dallas Metroplex it's just a way of life. The text people are scary.Though signs have been appearing near Schools for no electronic devices Zones, it seems the norm.

    Not to be condescending but Police cars with one officer driving while typing on a laptop gets the example moving forward in the wrong direction.
