Americans Text Each Other While Driving to the Ballot Box to Vote for a Ban on Texting

lol, indeed.

A pair of findings to contemplate from today's Washington Post, on on texting and calling while driving 

This:

Thirty-five percent of drivers said they've read or sent a text message while driving in the last month, according to a new survey. Sixty-seven percent said they talked on a cellphone while driving in the past month, and almost a third said they do it regularly.

And this:

Eighty-seven percent supported laws against sending or receiving text messages while driving. Seventy percent wanted laws against the use of hand-held cellphones, and half of those surveyed said all cellphone use should be outlawed while driving.
