AT&T survey shows commuters continue to text and drive, outnumber the kids
Meanwhile, 49% of commuters text and drive. That is actually higher than the 43% of teens who are fiddling with their QWERTY keyboards while driving. And the teens are supposed to learn from us? 60% of those commuters who are texting and driving say that three years ago, they never would have been caught dead (no pun intended) committing this deadly act.
BlackBerry and Android users can download AT&T's free Drive Mode app. If you have the app enabled and are in a vehicle traveling over 25mph, any incoming text is interrupted and a return message automatically goes out to the sender of the message, saying that you are behind the wheel and will return the message later. It is a free download from the Google Play Store or BlackBerry World, and one that could save your life.
