I've Heard it dangerous but how many people actually do?
Most Helpful Girl
I'll admit, I do it every once in a while.
I have an old school phone, without any touch screen which makes it easier to text without looking at the phone. Since I can write with only one hand (right or left to suit the occasion) without ever looking at my cell phone, my eyes are not leaving the road at all. It's like one of my hands was resting on the shift, so I think it's not as dangerous as if you're actually looking at what you're writing. I know it can still be dangerous on different situations though, which is why I take extra precautions [never on a road I don't know, never on the highway, never when it's dark/raining/snowing and so on]
I'll be switching for a smartphone at the end of the month, so texting while driving will no longer happen :) I know I won't be able to text on a touch screen without looking at it, which is why I will stop doing so !
I don't answer the phone while I'm driving though.0
