    Washington Gov. Christine Gregoire yesterday signed this country’s first law putting the kibosh on the dangerous practice of text messaging while behind the wheel of a moving automobile. … Bully for her.

    Even tho I love my blackberry, I still love the standard cell phone nine key. I could txt using that without even thinking about it, didn't even look when I was sending the message. Don't know if I'll ever get there with this phone, but here's hoping.

    Sometimes those ducks just go too fast...especially while texting.

    Isn't there a program somewhere that reads your e-mail out loud? Even maybe transcribing e-mail for you from voice? Maybe that would help.
    My stereo integrates bluetooth, so then I could do it all in stereo, well, mono, anyway...
    Oh, neat thing, I got one of those "case logic" pockets, a small sack that hooks to your vent in the car and stuffed a Seideo 8100 charging cradle into it. With a small hole in the back it plugs in and charges while I can see the screen right next to the steering wheel. Good for navigation, seeing who the voice dial randomly selects and might make email reading safer if you have good eyes...

    I would just hate anyone to have to live with the fact they killed someone through something so easy to do !!

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~i admit I DWBB mostly talk with hands free and directions but that's about it. Sometimes texting but that's at stop lights and stop signs. Anthing else and I would probaby hit someone and that would not be good. Drive safe and have fun.

    I'm guilty of DWBB but I haven't done it very often. Usually I am messaging otherwise I'm using Bluetooth.

    I lost a good friend right before Christmas 2005 who had looked down to check his Blackberry - lost control of his vehicle and slide across a highway into a truck and was killed, leaving behind his wife, his 3 year old daughter and 7 month old son.

    Nothing is that important on any mobile device to risk losing your life....

    Re: Blackberry While Driving?

    I agree, if it's really that pressing just pull over to the side of the road. I love my crackberry, but I use it safely. The only thing I use is my bluetooth and even that doesn't last long, I really don't like to talk while driving. You'll never see me sending any text messages ever.

    Re: Blackberry While Driving?

    I was very guilty of this until on May 7th I was involved in a 5 car accident on the highway where I totalled my fiancee's car. Luckily I was NOT using my BB (or drinking, eating, adjusting the stereo, applying makeup, talking on the phone) when the accident occurred. I would say I was very lucky that I wasn't doing any of those things since I will have to go to court about this and any of those non-driving tasks would get me found guilty of causing the accident.
