A recent survey by Pew’s Internet and American Life Project concluded that adults and teens drive and text message about the same amount. However, when you measure both sending and reading text messages, adults are actually worse offenders.
With the dangers of driving and text messaging obvious, it is surprisingly that adults would act even more carelessly than teenagers.
While the New York legislature has enacted a law which prohibits texting and driving, this blog was the first to point out that the law has a major loophole. Albany’s dysfunctional politicians have yet to fix it with no resolution in near sight.
