Let's try logic...

So states across the country are throwing fits about text messaging while driving. I admit, I've done it from time to time. Or more than that. But still. I know it's dangerous, just like the wonderful politicians do. So, here's my thing. Many many radio stations who target the 18-24 or the 25-39 demographics now hold contests on the air where you have to text your answers to win. Knowing that it's young people who do the most texting, and knowing that radio stations are obviously promoting text messaging (they don't give a shit if it's while you're driving or not, but one of our stations holds these contests at 45 minutes past the hours of 7 AM, 11 AM, 2 PM, 5 PM and 7 PM which are prime after school/after work driving hours) why don't they tell the stations not to do that?

I know it's probably a silly idea, but it seems to me that the radio contest thing is one factor in DWT (driving while texting). I know we'll never stop it completely, hell, I'll probably never stop (at least I'm honest) but it might help...

I'm now off my soap box. Time to text message everyone I know. :)
