Texting while driving worse than billboarding while driving?

I saw this Verizon TV ad cautioning against texting while driving.



It seems a bit ironic to me that Verizon would be erecting giant billboards, which are in and of themselves a source of distracted driving.

I’ve been sending text messages to all my friends warning them not to read billboards while driving.

  1. Did it ever occur to Verizon to text or e-mail a caution statement to their subscribers? Verizon should be given credit for what appears to be the first cellular industry voice to speak out about texting, but no mention about CWD calling while driving.
