Texting While Driving: New Study Says If It Were Illegal, You Might Do It Anyway

JACKSON, Miss.–The people that are paid to do the big work under the capitol dome in Mississippi still have not come up with a doable version of a texting and driving ban. But even if that did happen, you might do it anyway.

There’s a new survey by AT&T that says three out of four people who text regularly still do it, even where it’s illegal.

Two thirds of regular cell phone users said they’ve read texts at a stop sign or red light. About one in four of all cell phone users surveyed admitted texting while driving.

The number one reason drivers said they did it was the desire to keep up with friends and family.

The survey was part of an effort to discourage texting while driving.
