I have written several times about the dangers of texting and driving. The studies clearly demonstrate that a person is more distracted when they text and drive. They have more difficulty staying in their lane of travel. They are more likely to rear-end a car slowing in traffic, and are less likely to see children entering the road.
The New York Times has created a game that demonstrates the difficulties encountered while texting and driving. I have attached the link to this post. I encourage you to try the game, and then try it with your kids. I was surprised at how hard it was, and it confirmed once again that texting and driving do not mix.
