    Well with BlackBerry use on the rise this is to be expected. And the traffic fatalities from the use of cell phones are the reason many states are passing laws with no texting/talking while driving.

    Most of them were texting - a headset won't help with that much.

    I noticed that statistic too. I bet you that they will start putting things in cars that kill cellphone signals while the car is in drive. Hope not but I bet soon enuff something will come out.
    This is my Blackberry. There are many like it, but this one is mine. Without me my Blackberry is useless. Without my Blackberry I am useless.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~I have done it before kinda. When ever I do do it ill do it at a red light. Its still not smart though. Most of the time ill hand my phone over to the passenger and tell them what to type and how to send.

    Friends don't let friends text and drive.

    Seriously though, I see people doing it and I myself have been guilty when I go out of town and have to drive. But now, I also wait until I get to a red light or have someone in the car text for me. No text is worth an accident.

    Yea you do have to hit ONE button to use VLINGO, but how many buttons do you have to hit to change your car stareo or worse type a text message.....Obviously it would be BEST to do nothing while driving.....but drive. But given the choice between ONE button and ONE HUNDRED...I choose ONE

    I call it weeding out the idiots. The BB and other devices are used has traps to get rid of stupid people who think multitasking is allowed every place.
    The problem is they tend to take innocent people with them. The best that could happen to them is paralyzed where they can't Text any more.
