Written by Poll Position   
Tuesday, 10 January 2012

The new year ushered in new laws in some states banning texting while driving.

A Poll Position national scientific telephone survey found that the majority of Americans (50%) said people who are caught texting while driving should lose their driver's license for a period of time, 38% said you should not lose your license for a period of time and 12% did not have an opinion.

Age groups differed by a large margin on the question. Young Americans in the 18-29 age group were not in favor of license loss with 52% against that kind of punishment, 39% were in favor and 10% offered no opinion.

In the 65 and over age group, 67% said you should lose your license for a period of time for texting while driving, 17% said you should not, 16% did not have an opinion.

Men and women also differed with 53% of women versus 47% of men said you should lose your license for texting while driving. Among women, 32% said you should not lose your license, 15% had no opinion. Among men, 44% said you should not lose your license for texting while driving and 9% did not have an opinion.
