I agree with this quote completely. The problem isn’t with texting in general. The problem is when people decide to check a message or send a message while driving. People in general need to learn when the right time and place to check and text on their phone.

If society and the laws are so against drinking and driving, why would they more then willingly allow and/or partake in an action that can be twice as deadly. If drinking and driving were legal, it wouldn’t be seen as such a vastly negative thing.
