A new survey done by the Michigan Office of Highway Safety Patrol shows many people still text while driving.

According to the survey, 16 percent owned up to texting while driving. That's double what it was a year ago. WNEM says many people they talked to think its actually more than 16 percent. It isn't just texting anymore either. Updating Facebook, looking up directions and checking email all distract also.

Do you text while driving? Have you tried to put your phone away?
