Text or Call

With the new study done at Fresno State about texting while driving, I was reminded of something I heard while on my recent trip to Edmonton.

A DJ on one of the radio stations I was listening to was talking about getting in touch with the radio station, and she said "And if you're driving, don't take any unnecessary risks by calling, go ahead and text us at XXXXXX". I thought to myself, is it really safer to text the radio station while driving than to call them?

What do you think?

I think texting is way more dangerous. At least if you call, you're looking at the road.

I agree Alex.

ABC 7 here in the bay area just did a story on this . . . A study published within the last 2 weeks shows that you are only 4 times more likely to get into an accident while talking on your phone. You are 23 times more likely to be in an accident if you're texting.
