Do you text and drive?
42 Comments on "Your Turn"
@Madlyb. That's what I used to do, until I found out that's still considering texting and drive and you can get a ticket for it.
I only text at stop lights, or I pull over.
i'm not even reading the other comments. Nothing pisses me off more than fucktards who balance their phones on their steering wheels to txt or read txts or whatever they are doing with their phones, causing them to look up and down earnestly as if they are somehow responsibly juggling the two activities even though their eyes are only 50% on the road. As someone who lost a sibling to a car accident, the hottest corner of hell is reserved for those who stupidly risk other's lives with their self-absorbed obsession with txting.
I don't text and drive but I will accept donated organs from those who do. My favorite was coffee in one hand and cigarette in the other, big SUV. Let's just say I dropped back a few lengths….it's the freaking tailgaiting that kills me. Idiots here will sit one carlength behind you going 70, even with an open lane next to them. I want a website where I can post these fuckers' license plate numbers. I can't freaking cure my husband of thus habit and I really hate it.
No. Anyone caught playing with their phone while driving should have their license taken away.
I've seen someone smoke a hookah and drive. They was some crazy sit right there.
Jesus, Count, get that looked at. Who the hell gets so horny while driving that they've gotta take care of business right then and there?
NO! And I have an overwhelming desire to punch drivers when I do see them doing it!
No.However have you noticed that just about every reality show the participants are texting-talking-and taking pictures while driving? Oh, and if a seat belt is worn they push it off their shoulder so it's totally ineffective. I just see them driving around in Mercedes and Range Rovers dismayed that the vehicles aren't equipped with Bluetooth. They are, but it's not used. Horrible examples to society.
No, and I've been rear-ended by someone who was.
I text, and I drive. I never combine the activities. For starters, it's stupid; it's also illegal in my state.
Umm it's illegal so no! Is not illegal in the US? That's crazy…..
I have voice recognition so I can just tell my phone what to do while I keep my eyes on the road. But I seriously limit it. Mostly just pull over and do it that way.
Traditional text and drive. No freaking way.I think the fine in CA is $361 (why they make it an odd # I will never know.)
Text and drive? What is this, 2006?
I tweet and drive. 😛
No way. I actually pull over, park, turn off the engine and take the keys out of the ignition before I use my phone to text or call.
Somebody told me that it's illegal to do even THAT … that I need to be out of the car. But even I have my limits!
I have fapped while driving a couple times. Always highways and at night, so no one can see. Much quicker and safer than road head, though road head is great.
Yes, and fap and drive; and eat and drive; and booze and drive; and… Cops love me because I pay half of their salary in fines.
Disclaimer: That was a (n awful) joke, I'm not a goddamn kamikaze or that retarded.
My sister does and it scares me to death.
Glad to hear how many of you won't text and drive. I won't either, but my dyslexic husband thinks it's okay, even though he takes 5 times longer to read or spell anything than I do. I have drilled it into my kids that nothing can't wait until they get where they're going. Although the fine just went up to $280 here in Toronto, I still see dozens of idiots doing it everyday. I always secretly hope that they drive into something like a pole.
I won't touch my phone when driving. Really, a phone call or message can wait, it's not that important. The dimwits who do it should lose their driver's license for good. What's going on in their heads anyway? They think they have the right to endanger everyone else's life on the road just so they can type a fucking text message? Assholes.
Nope, I do not even have a smart phone.
I don't drive. I have to stop to send a text if I get one when I am walking that requires my immediate attention.
I ask people or yell at them to stop. If your text is more important than your life, and everyone's life around you, YOU ARE A FUCKING PIECE OF SHIT.
AND YES, SITTING AT A RED LIGHT COUNTS.
No, and for anyone reading or posting here who do, please stop. Nothing is that important. Pull over if it is. I believe most drivers who cause these kinds of accidents too think, it'll never happen to me.
HELL NO. And I've been known to point and shout at drivers I see talking or texting on their phones.
never, and do not ride with drivers who do. I have a few friends where I will not get into their car. Even after speaking with them, they insist they are careful and can do both because it is only a few seconds of texting. With one ex-friend, she did it several times on a highway. I made her pull over and I got out. We have not spoken since. No loss, as far as I am concerned. I hope only that she doesn't kill someone along with herself.
I can't lie…
Yes, although I try to keep it to a minimum, and never when I am surrounded by other cars. If I wreck my car it will not be into another car.
Yep. Not on local roads, highways and stop and go.
@hadyn sorry, it was a general comment, not a reply to you!
No. Sometimes it's dicey even checking the time.
Never. Besides being against the law and now distracting driving being the number 1 cause of accidents overtaking drunk drivers: #1. My cell phone screen is almost impossible to read outdoors. Major glare on the screen and there is no setting to fix this. #2. I need two hands to text and find it takes a lot of concentration and time for me to do out of a car. So I can see why accidents happen.
Violet -I did not mean driving and texting at the same time,as I am not an idiot.
I won't even answer my phone unless it's hooked up to my car's bluetooth…and I want to throw shit at the cars of people who do talk on the phone with the handset. Texters get a throat punch
stupid people tricks for $100
Yes, but as two separate activities.
No. And only an idiot would actually admit that they did.
