No but if the phone rings and I try to answer it I feel I have to throw up on it.

My usage pf my phone while driving hasn't and won't change. If and when I use it while driving, I pull off the side of the road.

Even before the laws per passed, I never used my phone while driving. So personally, it made no difference for me. My mom, however, has avoided answering the phone while driving now.

According to Car & Driver, texting is much more dangerous than drinking and driving.

Hope so, but I already didn't text while driving. I am not that talented!
So to everyone else, Put down the phone and drive.

Makes no difference to me. I use a bluetooth to talk and text if I need to. Mostly, I pull over or park to text.

If you want to talk to God, Pray.

If you want to see God, Text.

I still see people texting and using cell phones while driving. It seems the law should be inforced much stricter
