Finally!!! Honestly People,.. thousands, even 10's of thousands of pounds of steel moving at 60-70-80 MPH in CLOSE proximity,.. moving many, many FPS, and you act like it's the same as walking in the park!! or pushing a button on the radio???????

To make my point,... Anybody see the news footage of the FUCKING MORON that fell in a fountain WALKING & TEXTING?????

...and all of you that think you're such Great, skillful, accomplished,.. talented drivers, texting, talking, playing with your iPod's???

YOU'RE WRONG,.. YOU'VE JUST BEEN PLAIN OL' LUCKY!!! The other drivers who are paying attention,.. alert & driving safely have been the one's who've avoided your dumbassed shit on the road and saved not only themselves, but YOU TOO!!!!


FUCK!!! I can't BELIEVE this is even considered debatable!!!! People are DYING because of this STUPID SHIT!!!!

True that Tigre.
Real men drive manuals, so we can't be distracted doing silly feminine texting while driving.

I'm an old bastard so the whole concept of texting just seems like a very womanly activity.

I drive a 5-speed while engaging in the "womanly activity" of texting, eating, changing clothes, emailing, whatever. Always performed with sound judgement and timing, however. I'm not an idiot.

Call it silly, feminine, and womanly if you want, pencap.
I call it multi-tasking.

This entire "texting while driving " argument is inane. The OP is complaining when, if he doesn't like it, he should've driven himself. Simple as that. For someone who got to sit in a back seat and put his feet up while someone else carted his ass back and forth, he has NO room to complain.

In terms of texting and driving, there's a time and a place. It doesn't ALWAYS have to be dangerous nor is it ALWAYS safe.

A phenomenon I have noticed with all drivers, but much more present in women, is that if the person knows how to drive a manual, they are usually a good driver. It must have something to do with being in-tune with the car and all of it's components... or bad drivers just suck too much at driving to comprehend how to drive a manual.

Case in point, I went on a date with a girl (mid-20s) in my pervious car (5-speed manual) and she asked me how I could drive a manual, because it's so complicated. I said "It's really pretty simple, you start out in first gear, and as your revs build up you switch through the gears. An automatic works the exactly same way, except the car does the shifting for you". She replied with something along the lines of "Oh wow, I always wondered why when I push the gas pedal, the car would make a lot of noise, then get quite, and then make more noise again".

Needless to say that was the last date, I went on with this girl. And although I never saw her drive, I would bet money she is terrible at it.

I don't know, what if the dude was putting away a six-pack while he was driving? Still no room to complain? Not that those are necessarily equal in risk, but if someone's driving makes me uncomfortable I'm going to at least say something. If they tell me to **** off then I figure they're not much of a friend and I'll make a different decision next time. I'd much rather drive myself; somehow, even with ADHD I can manage to drive 10+ hours in a row without having to keep myself entertained by playing with my phone.

The point is that beggars can't be choosers and rather than bitch abou his friend on a forum, perhaps he should just drive next time ? I'm not saying his friend is right or wrong, all I'm saying is "my car, my stereo, my rules." If someone was drinking while driving and I was in the car? Well, I'd be stupid for being in that car.. But lets just say he started after the fact and I wasn't okay with it ..I might say something and wait for his response.. That would determine whether I'd go anywhere with him DRIVING again..not whether I'd bitch and moan about it.
Do you really base all of your friendships on whether or not someone does what they want in their car while they drive so you don't have to?
