Texting and Driving is very annoying to Motorists
Texting while driving is not only dangerous and illegal in 43 states and Washington, D.C., it's also annoying for other drivers.
Almost seven in 10 American drivers rate their fellow drivers who text, e-mail or talk on a phone while driving as among the most aggravating motorists. When you have 30 million people out on the road, and each of them wants to send just one little text, that's when crashes happen.
3,328 people died in distraction related crashes in 2012, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. 421,000 were injured.
It's now illegal to text while driving in every state except Arizona, Mississippi, Montana, Oklahoma, South Carolina and Texas.
Among the other motorist behaviors that drivers find highly annoying: tailgating, weaving between lanes, driving well below the speed limit and multitasking. (applying makeup, eating or reading, for example)
