Nobody likes texting and driving except when you’re the one doing it. Knowing that it’s dangerous, and knowing that people are going to do it anyway, especially in a state as amped up as New York, the state has recently started installing “texting zones” along the side of its highways, to give busy and antsy people plenty of places to pull over and send their text messages before they accidentally careen off a bridge into a bus full of school children because “lol :)” can’t wait one damn minute.
Right now, if you’ve got an emergency, you’ve got to call 911, but come 2014, you’ll be able to text your emergencies into the local police, fire and ambulance if that would work better for you. If you’re mute, or in a hostage situation, if you’re hog tied in the back of someone’s trunk… all good examples of lives that would be saved if you could text rather than call.

Texting and driving can be pretty dangerous, but if you’re going to text while driving, don’t do it while driving at the edge of the cliff, and if your last text before going over is “I need to quit texting”, maybe you should have quit texting a few miles back.
