And I forgot .....blah blah blah with other Deafies in the car that a heavy more distraction signing and driving at the same time. Hey I'm guilty of that thing but made 3x worse because I have to steer car, sign, and shift my car's gears (it's a 5-speed stickshift)
Must agree with you about the distractions in the car -- I do sign while driving and talking with friends, but am very cautious about where I'm going and so forth.
As for using my mobile phone to text someone, I usually wait until I'm fully stopped at a light or have parked in a safe place. It's dangerous and illegal to be talking/texting on mobile phones whilst driving.
