Texting While Driving

We all know that texting and driving is dangerous, but what about going beyond just sending short text messages, and actually composing and sending emails while driving? I’m voting for “stupid” as the proper adjective to use.

Lane Roster, a Huntington Beach, California repo man who has taken driving and emailing to an extreme. Mr. Roster decided that he absolutely had to send emails while driving, so he mounted his iPhone on the dash of his car and loaded the Email n’ Walk app, a program that uses a camera view of what’s directly ahead of you as the backdrop to a standard email screen.

Email ‘n Walk, as the name implies, is designed to be used while walking. Roster, in a phone interview, stated that “If I can’t email and drive or send an occasional text I would get absolutely nothing done.” He also admitted to getting into two minor accidents while emailing and driving.

I’m going to end this post with two quick reminders: Don’t text (or e-mail) and drive, and try to stay out of Huntington Beach, California if you value your life
