    I really hope the 6+ puts an end to texting and driving here in O.C. and L.A., unless these people start driving with their knees and text with both hands.

    Haha a scary thought. I'm sure people will find ways. Driving and voice memoing! - which is just as dangerous.

    I saw someone using his 6 plus as they were pulling into a parking space at the gym today.

    :rolleyes: people will find a way.

    Honestly I think it's going to make it worse...not in the sense that it will get more peole texting and driving, but it'll make it more dangerous for the ones who already do because they will continue to try and the 6+ requires a lot more attention to hold and use one handed. Some items most people won't even be able to do one handed so I could see them taking their other hand off the steering wheel to use the phone.

    If it's plugged into their car they can just say "Hey Siri" then "Send a text to (insert name here) saying (whatever message you want to send)".

    I thought the same. The 6+ would require more handling. This Korean woman was texting in the fast lane on the 5 FWY causing back up, oblivious to the cause and effect of her habits.
