Drunk Drivers Perceived As Dangerous As Text Drivers

pinger.jpgAre you one of the millions of drivers who can’t wait to send a text message? A survey released today by Pinger, Inc. and conducted by Harris Interactive finds that 91% of American adults think sending text messages or mobile emails while driving is as dangerous as driving after a few drinks. State Legislators across the nation are looking at laws to combat this scourge of the electronic age.

Thankfully, the good people at Pinger, Inc. have a solution. (Yes, Pinger paid for the survey.) By subscribing to Pinger’s voice messaging service, a driver speaks into a hands-free headset, gives a contact name and message, and then hangs-up. The message is sent to any mobile phone in the U.S. Your hands never have to leave the Two o’clock – Ten o’clock position.
