An overwhelming majority of Americans think driving and texting are a bad mix.
Just four-percent of those taking part in a new Rasmussen Reports poll say motorists should be allowed to send text messages, while 94-percent disagree. Two-thirds of those polled would also support banning drivers from talking on a cell phone, which is up 13-percent compared to a similar poll two years ago. But 66-percent note they’re OK with people chatting on a cell phone while behind the wheel if a hand-free phone device is being used. Adults under the age of 40 are more permissive when it comes to talking and driving, but
respondents in all age groups oppose texting and driving. Thirty-percent oppose any type of cell phone use by drivers.
