    I ban people on my phone while driving.

    Technically that counts as a drive-by

    I don't.

    But if have to admit it. I try to get a quick response at red lights. I usually spell things wrong.

    If someone keeps texting me, i just call

    I don't. My mobile is put face down when I get in my car so it won't distract me and is on silent.

    My work bans drivers from having mobiles on whilst driving. Get caught, get fired.

    I usually only text at stop signs and red lights. Usually.

    I don't.

    Had some cunt today who was drifting between lanes because she was staring at her phone. Caught her at a red light and told her if I saw her use her phone again, I was going to shove it down her fucking throat. Dumb fucks like that will get people killed.

    Texting at red lights is fair game.

    Its one of those things where if you do it yourself you don't think anything of it. But when you see someone else driving and doing it when you are in the car you get a little nervous. I'm guilty of this.

    I'm really good at multi-tasking.

    But really though I try to avoid it as much as I can.

    I was doing this a few weeks ago, looked over and a cop was staring at me through my window. $50 ticket.

    I texted while driving when I first got a smartphone a long time ago. I looked up and noticed I was drifting well into an oncoming lane. So, that was the end of that. I won't ride with somebody who texts while the car is moving.
