BRITAIN: 42% of Drivers Use Mobiles While Driving. “Around 20% admitted using a mobile to send a text, 4% checked emails and 2% even sent emails while behind the wheel. Some 2% read Twitter or Facebook updates while at the wheel and 1% even tweeted while driving.”
I see this all the time — and on more than one occasion have seen law-enforcement officers texting while driving. In fact, it’s so common that it’s hard for me to believe that it’s as dangerous as they say, or there would be no one left alive on the roads . . .
