(Seattle, WA)  --  A poll conducted in the Portland area and Washington state indicates even though motorists know that texting by drivers is illegal, many of them do it anyway.  The PEMCO Insurance survey indicates that half of the respondents under age 35 sometimes engage in texting while driving.  Roughly 20 percent of those under 35 admitted to talking on a hand-held cell phone while behind the wheel.  The U.S. Department of Transportation estimates that texting drivers contribute to at least 100-thousand crashes every year.
