    Re: Do you send text/PIN messages while driving?

    If I lived in the UK or Italy I would not, as they have REAL drivers there and one can actually "drive" the car. I love to drive, and drive fast safely.

    However here in the US, so many individuals are simply passengers sitting behind the steering wheel. They are busy visiting with others in the car, at a snails pace in the fast lane. Or blocking others because they are busy doing everything except DRIVING their car!

    So at that pace I can do both. I simply leave a huge gap between me and the car in front. Not the safest answer I know, and I've been trying to cut back.

    Cheers...

    I do all of these except watch video. I have one BBWD to my credit. I try to do it less, but it's too easy to do!

    Re: Do you send text/PIN messages while driving?

    yes. PIN and MSN. Maybe an email :P Normally i can no look type. I won't read a reply until i'm at a red light. I wouldn't do this all the time as I am about 5 minutes from work and usually meeting up with someone... have a quick note that i am close.

    I read and reply to SMS.

    I read email, but not reply to them....until at a red light.

    Phone calls? Who doesn't?

    But yeah, it's stupid and dangerous. Though far less dangerous and stupid than talking to friends in the car / driving drunk or stoned / driving old.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~i rarely do anything but talk (bluetooth) while driving. One must admit it takes some attention to text on a 7250 with 1 hand.
