While I was in NJ, I was stunned at the number of people talking, with cell in hand, while driving. I only saw one or two texters. I wanted to pull these people over and yell at them for risking my life for a stupid conversation!

New studies show that more people than ever are doing these two dangerous actions. If you think it's no big deal, think again. When you talk or text while driving, your speed typically drops 5 to 10 miles per hour. That snarls traffic and causes accidents. Plus, you look like a total ass.

One guy in Florida was swerving on the roadway and generally driving recklessly. The cops caught it all on tape.

See for yourself why you just should not text or talk while driving. Did I mention the other reason? In New York you could lose your license. I like that law.
