I rarely text, but always outside of a vehicle, and not walking anywhere.

I agree because when I was in Germany that's all they done was text and drive and in certain areas it wasn't against the law but how can you focus on the road when you are doing this. It's just too dangerous to me!!

I suspect there will soon be a "support group" for the disease of texting, then all incidents of death or damage would no longer be accidents or user stupidity, but a medical condition forgiven in our corrupt courts of law.

Try texting while seated!

Who invented texting anyway? Oh Al Gore did also along with the Internet? Oh I see. Don't text when driving or walking is good advise.

What could be so important asked I have to distract yourself take a chance of killing you or someone else to text a message to someone that probably is irrelevant and unimportant pull over to the side of the road if it's very important and text your message

Texting! What is it? Are we all OCB? Some of my friends can't stop. Can't lay it down for anything...driving or whatever. I had a medical procedure recently and I reminded the MDs to all lay their phones down and concentrate .. We need to do the same thing with our driving.

What's so important that you have to text someone while you're walking?
