    The family of a University of Colarado student have released a picture of his phone with an unsent text message that he had typed before crashing his car. He later died at a hospital.

    The picture is a chilling reminder of the danger's of texting while driving. We are all guilty of this. Let's try and control our urge to be constantly connected with our friends & family. Better to communicate a little late then them having to receive a call from the cops or the hospital informing of news that will change their lives forever.

    I've bumped into the back of a Meru cab once reading a text while in stop and go traffic. It was a small nudge, but was enough to prove that texting draws more attention to the small screen than speaking via the bluetooth.

    @ Amit" Good share mate.

    @ Caffeineam: I don't usually reply while driving but can't resist the urge of reading one. My B&M doesn't read messages from android. I would try to overcome my resist after reading your experience.

    There is an option to readout your text message and voice text your sms in phones hope this will be good if used with bluetooth device in cars when driving.

    Texting is the most dangerous than speaking on phone and especially on the touch screen mobiles. Even while trying to dial a number i see my friends swaying on the road left and right. Also once on phone the driver forgets whats going around, how is he driving, where is the attention etc etc.
