Texting while driving is illegal. It's a New York State Law, but many people still do it. I myself am stupid enough to do it on occasion.  I am usually good at pulling over to the side of the road or into a parking lot if I really need to respond to a text. Sometimes I just wait till I hit a stop light, but every now and again I might be on the Northway and pull out the phone even though I know I shouldn't do it!

I found a great video today that is a great way to prove that texting and driving at the same time is very dangerous. It comes from Belgium and shows young people taking their drivers test. There is a catch though, the driving instructor says the only way they can pass is if they can operate a car and text at the same time. Correct spelling is also a part of this test.  All the driver's have the same reaction and it is nearly impossible for them to accomplish the task.

Even though this video is kind of funny, it shows the dangers of texting and driving. All it takes is to take your eyes off the road for a few seconds and who knows what could happen to you.
