The Texting and Driving Test

(YouTube link)

The Belgian organization Responsible Young Drivers (RYD) confronted the issue of texting while driving by telling student drivers they would have to pass a test on their texting while driving skills, and then recorded their attempts. The results are a lesson for all of us. -via mental_floss

Too bad people over here don't have that common sense that it's too dangerous to do while driving. MAN I wish they would make it illegal in my state already.

The world is getting crazier all the time! Just last week I stood in a line at a department store, and the kid in the front of the line was texting his Dad who was 6 customers back in the same line!!!!!

I heard the next thing coming are glasses that one can wear and the words of the incoming and outgoing text will be readable in the upper corners. They are going to combine this with voice-recognition to be able to drive or watch a movie and talk.

Gosh... I can't stand the little lights going on all over when I'm watching a movie I paid $15.00 to see!!!!

I'm learning to drive at the moment, and there are many teenagers in my class who say that their PARENTS often text and drive. So this isn't just a young people's problem. Idiots can come in any age.
