Survey Shows Support For Bans On E-Mail, Texting While Driving

Ninety-one percent of Americans think driving while distracted by text messages or e-mail is as dangerous as driving after drinking alcoholic beverages, according to a recent survey.

And many of those who think texting while driving should be outlawed would have to change their behaviors or face penalties if the practice were banned.

"We all know that distracted driving is dangerous, especially when drivers take their eyes off the road to text message," Greg Woock, CEO of Pinger, said in a statement. "But, as these numbers show, people want to stay connected when they're on the go."
