Survey Says Most People Know Texting While Driving Is Dangerous, Do It Anyway

Let’s just admit that we all do it. Here are the opening paragraphs of an article at

Odds are, you’re not sending your friends and loved ones off to drive somewhere with a hearty, “Don’t forget to text while driving!” But even though mostly everyone knows that texting and driving a car is dangerous, a new survey shows that a whole heck of a lot of us still do it anyway.

In what I’ll call the “Yeah, But It’s Fine Just This Once” phenomenon, 98% of respondents to an AT&T survey who own cellphones and text on the regular said they were aware of the dangers — but about 75% of those admitted they’d texted while driving, even though it’s illegal to do so in some states.

The survey is part of an AT&T campaign against texting while driving, reports the Associated Press, and was designed with David Greenfield, founder of The Center for Internet and Technology Addiction and a professor at the University of Connecticut’s School of Medicine.

About This Blog

The title of this blog reflects my attitude toward those government agencies and insurance companies that routinely mistreat injured or disabled people. As a Dallas, Texas lawyer, I've spent more than 45 years trying to help those poor folk, and I have been frustrated daily by the actions of the people on the other side of their claims. (Sorry if I offended you...)
