09/24/2013, We know how difficult it can be to completely ignore your cell phone while your driving as no matter how often we’re told not to text and drive, people seem to do it regardless of the warnings. A number of states have already passed legislations to help combat those who continue to text and drive, although New York will begin introducing “Text Stops” along its major highways and thruways.
08/13/2013, You know what they say? If you can’t beat ‘em, then join ‘em. I would suppose that government regulating some of society’s activities, such as gambling, alcohol and prostitution has something to do with keeping tabs and control over the situation. After all, if you were to outlaw something, chances are pretty high things could get ugly on the streets, so why not regulate the entire situation and make some […]

04/23/2013, Texting while driving is as big of a no-no as talking on the phone while driving, especially since both activities are distracting and could cause accidents.

04/08/2013, Texting while driving may be two activities that we all can agree shouldn’t mix, especially if you’re driving a school bus or if you’re double-texting with a baby and drugs in your vehicle. But we think texting while flying is probably even more dangerous, especially now that such a case is being linked to a fatal crash. Back in 2011, an emergency medical helicopter flying over Missouri was found to be sending […]
04/05/2013, AT&T conducted a survey last week that found adults text and drive more than teenagers, but after hearing about this next story, we’re curious just how many of drivers out there double text and drive, which is probably as dangerous as it sounds as it involves a person texting and driving with two mobile devices. According to the Mobile County Sheriff’s Office in Alabama, 19-year-old Dandre Moore was found to be […]
03/08/2013, Texting while driving has been one activity a good majority of people realize is a terrible idea, and yet there are a number of us who can’t help but to take our eyes off the road for a few seconds to read and maybe respond to a text.

02/14/2013, We’ve heard of sleep walking, but sleep texting? That’s definitely something new, but given the popularity of texting these days, is it really that surprising? This phenomena was spotted by a nursing professor who discovered that teens are actually responding to text messages while fast asleep!

05/29/2012, Last week we reported that a woman was currently being sued as being responsible in a texting-while-driving car accident involving a motorbike. It does sound pretty straightforward but in case you might have missed our coverage, here’s the kicker – the woman was not the one behind the wheel, but rather she was the one sending the text messages to the person behind the wheel (her boyfriend). According to the […]
12/21/2011, How many of you have ever told a lie when face to face with somebody? How many of you have done it while texting? If you find it easier to lie in the latter category – don’t worry because you’re not alone. According to some research done by the University of British Columbia, text messaging leads to people being more deceitful when compared to other modes of communication.
12/13/2011, Car accidents happen on a daily basis and while it’s not always the case, more often than not, one of the drivers is using a mobile device behind the wheel.
