Poll Finds 1-in-4 Americans Text While Driving

Growing up, my mom always said, “safety first!” I guess the same can’t be said for the rest of America, as a recent poll shows that 1-in-4 Americans text while driving. Now, I’d be lying if I said I’ve never texted while driving, but with the recent enactment of the ban of text messaging while driving in Washington State, I’ve been trying to tone it back a bit. ;D

Here’s a quick piece from the article, “The survey, which was conducted by Vlingo, says that 26 percent of people admit to texting while driving—the implication is that plenty more people text while driving than admit to doing so. (Note: Polls are created with this type of “are they telling the truth?” scenario in mind, so it should make a huge impact on the final percentage.) The poll surveyed 4,800 people.”
