yeah i agree with this 100%. it might be slightly easier to do but not enough to make any less safer. Honestly i couldnt do it. I would either crash or send a bad text message. Really dont want either. Its really to hard to focus on the road, then think up a conversation and speak it and then make sure it was transcribed properly cause we all know that most voice to text like siri or even google now still mess up very much when it comes to voice to text. JUST DONT DO IT!!!!!
The largest risk associated with texting while driving isn't the fact that they're not watching the road in front of them, it's that they're entirely concentrated on something other than driving. I recently read a book called "Brain Rules" which describes how our minds can only focus entirely on one thing at a time. Switching between two different activities can take as much as half a second, which, in a moving vehicle, can be the difference between life and death.
Well it sounds like what I've thought for a long time. The best thing to do is not text. I know when I worked for AT&T you could not text, talk, anything while driving. They even "cautioned" against having the radio on to loud.

Just ignore those distractions!
As a frequent driver, I tend to agree with this, no matter how good voice recognition is, it isn't good enough. I nearly always have to make corrections before sending, the time spent making corrections sometimes takes more time then simply typing it correctly the first time. Thus I tend to stop, type, then go.
