Because you almost certainly don't need the information that moment and too many people can't resist the temptation to text while driving.
It's not your job to tell me what I "need" or don't need. I will decide that for myself.
You'll survive without the text and as a result so will some other people.
No, I will survive with the text, and so will you and everyone else, as much as it might make your pussy hurt.
Good for you but that doesn't establish any compelling need for you to receive or send a text message while driving.
I do not have to explain or justify my actions to you or to anyone else.
I'm willing to be convinced but "because I want to" isn't a good enough argument for me given the safety issues involved.
Nobody is interested in trying to convince you of anything. Your opinion is irrelevant.
Do you stop at stop lights even when there is no traffic?
Sometimes part of living in a civil society is dealing with a little personal inconvenience to ensure safety and order.
Fuck you and fuck your "civil" society. If you are too much of an irresponsible coward to live your life without Big Brother holding your hand every step of the way, that's YOUR problem...not mine.
Maybe you are the responsible one (I have not reason to doubt it) but since the rest of us have no way to be sure of that you might have to deal with having to wait for that text message to arrive.
Nope. I will continue texting and there is nothing you can do about it, pussy.
People who text while driving are every bit as dangerous as people who drink and drive.
You are a moron.
There are plenty of studies that support this.
Yes, there are studies out there which will support any conclusion that a useful idiot such as yourself wishes to reach.
While anecdotal, I actually know more people who have been in accidents caused by distracted (texting) driving than by drunk drivers.
Maybe you should spend more time practicing defensive driving techniques, and/or move out of whatever shithole you reside in.
Texting is the leading cause of death for teen drivers.
Bullshit. The leading cause of death for teen drivers is being a teen driver.
