After years of working in Silicon Valley, a long daily commute has become commonplace to me, and for the most part, I barely notice my fellow commuters and their in-car antics anymore. In the past, though, I’ve seen people putting on makeup, eating breakfast, even one guy shaving his face. However, when I saw that the March 30th installment of the Wall Street Journal Sentiment Tracker was about a new survey showing that adults are now admitting to texting and driving more than teenagers, I found the news frightening. There are big fines in CA for texting and driving, and I see people getting pulled over – as many of the comments said in the WSJ report, powered by NetBase, a text just isn’t worth it. 87% of Facebook and Twitter users are outraged that adults are being so irresponsible, 8% thought it wasn’t a big deal and 5% made jokes. Check out some of the jokes below:
So, what do you think? Outrageous or no big deal? Let me know in the comments!
