It was getting so bad around my region they organized an assembly and showed us this video. It's been around awhile but i haven't seen it until today.

Well, this discouraged me from getting my permit. I don't even own a phone....

I don't do it, because I feel like there's rarely anything important to say via text.

People should just focus on the road while they're driving. I don't understand why that's so hard. Some girl was on her phone while she backed into one of my mom's car mirrors and some woman hit my bumper the same way, for the same reason. I mean, if you can't multitask, you should probably stay off your fucking phone.

I don't do it. I've tried it, but I ended up almost veering off the road so I stopped doing that shit. Anything that was majorly important I had to say I could find somewhere to pull over safely and do it at.

I wish my boyfriend would listen to me and stop though :( I feel like such a mother when I'm telling him not to, and that's nothing I ever want to feel like when it comes to my love life. But I'm really just concerned with his safety.. :/ blah.

Its illegal where I live and so many people still do it. I get so mad when I see people on their phones whilst operating a vehicle.

I probably couldn't do it if I wanted to, I'm bad enough at paying attention to the road as it is....

I hate when I see people on the phone whilst driving, really annoys me!

It's illegal here now and I still see people doing it all the time. I've always pulled over if I needed to text or call someone back, unless I'm at a red light and then I text back really fast because I mean... I'm stopped.

I do change songs all the time on my ipod though and that is SO much more distracting.

I've done it in the past. Not something I'm particularly proud of but I've done it.

I've stopped. It's completely irresponsible and so negligent. Just shows a general lack of regard for other drivers and yourself.

I once saw a scary ad in Dubai that showed a cell phone broken in a pool of blood, and above it it said "We're sorry, but the number you're trying to reach is currently unavailable." That really freaked me out
