Well ... this is a no brainer. Many local communities in our area (and around the country) are trying to ban texting while driving citing that it is not safe. Really?!?! Shocking! I cannot multitask while texting in the safety of my own home without having some sort of incident. In fact, I burnt a batch of cookies while "just checking" my phone for a second. And this attentiveness level should be different in a vehicle?
(insert sarcasm). I am confident that a high percentage of these were a direct result of driver inattentiveness to the road and attentiveness to a phone/text.
