Poll - do you use your device while driving?

many city's law enforcement agencies are having 'blitzes' lately
In my city they're recently starting a big campaign to cut down on 'distracted driving'.  Plus, with all the news of Google Glass, plus seeing how some states are pre-emptively stating that using it or even your phone's maps are a 'distraction'... it's been something on my mind lately.

Especially as my morning's commute still is the car (not warm enough to bike just yet) so I'm getting in a few 'drive by hacks' with Ingress.  Usually I slow down and pull into the parking lot and hack, then drive off.

So what are your device habits while in charge of the vehicle?
No, we're not going to track who you are and report you (I don't even think that's possible with Google Docs).  Please be honest.  I'm curious.


  1. If my car is in park and I have time to retrieve my device from where it`s put away I`ll use it. That means 5 minute train crossing. When I`m driving in a different city, I don`t even answer with hands free.

  2. I didn't fill out this survey because I use my phone in 2 distinct ways that are actually lumped together in the survey.

    When I get in my vehicle, I plug my phone into the charger and leave it in the tray on the arm rest next to me.

    I have bluetooth enabled and will take phone calls while driving. Occasionally I will voice dial someone as well.

    I also will occasionally look at notifications and text but *only* at stop lights. Never while driving. When I text, I will use voice input whenever possible to speed up entry and minimize my use while at a stop light. Most of the time I will keep my texting to the times when I am parked (usually at my destination).

    1. yeah, there's such a wide variety of ways to to use it, i was tryin got get a somewhat 'clumped' data... so if it was closer to one style than another

  3. This is monitored by the local police. Those who voted can expect tickets in mail.... lol J/k

    Not being a driver this really doesn't apply to me, but I have a friend who texts and drives that I always bust his balls about.
    He swears to me he doesn't but I have MMS pictures from him of pictures from behind the wheel to prove him wrong lol.

    Long story short... DON'T TEXT AND DRIVE! Please don't put myself and my Son's life at risk when crossing the street at a cross walk while your texting and turning.
