In-vehicle txting ban works, at least in California

442887_chartAs we talked about the other day, sending text messages while driving is bad, okay? And in some states it’s illegal. So do Americans listen? If you make it against the law to send text messages, will only outlaws text?

It looks like people listened. The law took effect in January and according to a study done by the Automobile Club of Southern California, has caused 70% of the drivers who would txt while driving before, to stop. As impressive as this sounds, it should be 100%. I mean, is it REALLY that important to send a text message? It can’t wait until you can pull over, or get to your destination?

Of course, this study was done before the iPhone gained the ability to MMS, so who knows if the trend will last.
