My sister is a kindergarten teacher here in Las Cruces NM, and towards the end of last school year one of her students was riding home with her mom after school and their car was broad sided by a woman who was typing a text message(she was charged and found guilty). The little girl was in a coma for almost month and is still in physical therapy learning how to walk.
I'm 25 years old and while I can't say I've never text msg'd while driving I can honestly say that was the day I stopped.
The truth is it's driving impaired and illegal where I live, had that woman not been texting chances are none of that would have happened.
But being part of the young hip crowd I'm sure you're good at it.
