Inspired by this thread.
There seems to be a consensus in the thread that texting while driving is bad.
Well, a near consensus.
Bullitt and Bear_Nenno are arguing that it’s okay to text while driving, under specific circumstances (well, Bullitt is; Bear_Nenno may be Just Asking Questions). And when called to task for this point of view, Bullitt’s response appears to boil down to, “Oh, but you won’t say anything about eating while driving, huh?” Unless I’m completely misreading it, the crux of this argument appears to be that, if you would rationalize any other form of distracted driving, then bemoaning texting while driving is hypocrisy.
So, I put it to the Dope: is it?
Poll to follow (I hope).
