Texting and driving under the influence

I guess this is mildly surprising to me, but it makes sense. Researchers have determined that texting behind the wheel is more dangerous than driving while under the influence of alcohol.

When you're under the influence of alcohol, your steering might be affected. But when your texting, you don't even have hands to steer. You probably should be charged with a DWI (Driving While Idiotic).

What you really want to watch out for is the person texting while drinking and driving.
