I don't know why it's not illegal to drive and text/talk at the same time, but there are still some states that don't seem to care. It's a lethal combination. Nothing give me shivers more that a soccer mom with a van full of kids yakking away on her phone.
It really doesn't matter if it's against the law or not; it's simply not safe. Everyone should have a handsfree device for mobile phones in the car. If only I could introduce them to the wonders of Supertooth Buddy. Let me tell you about it.
