Phones on the whole while driving are bad, even with the whole bluetooth thing. I was better at driving while HOLDING my phone to talk before California outlawed it, then I tried the hands free thing and it was way more complicated so I don't bother. Not worth the risk. And yeah, texting while driving is just moronic and so so dangerous.
That said, I am a big texter while not
in the car. Heh, you know, probably my mom is the one who texts me the most these days actually!
