This is now my number one pet peeve. I just cannot understand why people think it is okay to do this. I nearly got sideswiped yesterday by a guy who was using his BlackBerry while driving and today I witnessed a woman swerving all over the road while texting. The video in this article below show just how dangerous this is and how much worse it is than driving while drunk. Please watch this video. http://www.cnbc.com/id/31545004/site/14081545 There is really absolutely no reason to text while driving. No one is that important. Well, if they are, they already have someone else driving them.
