    Okay, now that the Treo 600 is so easy to use, how many of you will admit to surfing the internet while driving!

    Wonder if they'll have to create a law against this!

    I've checked email and movie listings...it really is a bad thing, so I try to avoid it...most people on the road are distracted enough.

    Someone's life isn't worth it.

    Wow, I didn't say it was right, I was just trying to find out how prevalent the problem is.

    And what's wrong with surfing as a passenger?

    Jesus... using the internet while driving. Well, ta-ta, there goes civilization. And I thought my 'hands-free' talking was pushing it.

    Yep, only good things can come from people looking at a tiny screen while maneuvering 2-ton machines.

    Interestingly enough, this usually seems to coincide with the gene pool life guard coming back on duty.

    Having said that, I've um... Used Aim on my phone while driving. Only at stop lights or on a straight away taking my sweet old time to type the brief I'm driving leave me alone message.

    I used Dir Asst, or Map Quest, or Yahoo yellow page, while driving sometime, but only at stop light or on a staigh away" using my knee to keep the wheel Staight"

    that's the whole purpose of map, and direction programs "like using a GPS"

    LOL

    I've pulled up sigalert.com a couple times when the freeway I'm on has crawled to a halt so I can try to figure out how late I'm going to be. One of these days, that big display in my Prius is going to do all that for me...

    Sorry if my answer...."No, I respect life" seems a little abrupt.

    Recently had a co-worker killed in motor-vehicle accident and the last thing we need is another distraction while driving.

    I have no problem with surfing as a passenger, but your poll was "Do you surf while driving" if you're a passenger then you're not driving.

    I'm sure we can all relate to some outrageous behavior we have observed that seemed funny at the time, two come to my mind: A guy driving with his morning paper laid out across his steering wheel, while drinking his morning coffee and oh yeah, driving!!!

    The other one was a gal who finished dressing herself and putting on makeup while driving.

    "I don't know who was more distracted her or me............"

    Anyway, these things seem less "FUNNY" now!
