A new AT&T survey says that more adults than teens are likely to text while driving. Do you think it's true in Bolingbrook, Plainfield and Joliet?
Hey Mom and Dad, and all the other adults out there: Do you text and drive? A new survey by AT&T Wireless indicates you do. Does the expression “Do as I say, not as I do” ring true here? Perhaps it should it be, “Drive as I say, not as I text.” With the National Safety Council attributing more than 100,000 crashes a year to texting and driving, and with 75 percent of teens saying texting and driving is common among their friends, perhaps many assumed the problem was associated most with these youthful drivers.

A survey is available for all those interested in providing Metra with feedback for Oswego expansion.
Editor's Note: Special thanks to the Village of Oswego for the information. Metra, the commuter rail agency, is again seeking public input for its new strategic plan.
