How to Whatsapp or Text while driving: 3 Easy steps. 

1.    Buy a Tesla. Engage the autopilot and text until your battery drains off.
2.    Employ a full-time Chauffer. Yes they are availble here in Dubai. 
3.    If you can't afford one, give the phone to your wife/girlfriend/sister/brother/parent whoever the hell is sitting next to you while driving and let them text for you. 
Please never ever text and drive. Please don’t even touch your ducking phone while driving. 
There has been a plethora of research and studies conducted on the negative impacts of texting while driving. Motor vehicle crashes are among the top two causes of injury death throughout a person’s lifetime.3 They also are the No. 1 cause of work-related death. In 2010, an estimated minimum of 160,000 crashes involved texting or emailing, versus 1.1 million crashes involving talking on cell phones. 

If you are still insistent and think that you were born to do multitasking and endanger pedestrians and your fellow passengers live while driving please at least consider using the following apps, which assist you to reduce your phone usage whilst driving.

Texting and driving is a dick move. 

I see it every day.

Put your phone down, pull over and text back.

If you cant do that, deal with the consequences of an accident.

Hi @Jeh, good to hear such an educational topic. I used to own a Motorola Moto G some 4 years back and when setting up, it had a Drive Assist which came installed and it would read out the message to you when you were on the move. Ask you if you want to reply, ask you for the text and type it out as you speak and confirm and send the same without having to take your eyes of the road or hand on the steering wheel. Technology is always there to help make things better, it's up to us to use such technology to our advantage.

@Rahimdad exactly Rahim bhai. I was using the same moto assist. Anyway usage of the phone is a great distraction for drivers. I don't attend the calls if I can't pull over and I get a lot of complaints from my boss for not answering his calls :D

So sorry to hear about your spouse. Living with a long time injury really sucks. I can understand. 

Thats the most important thing nobody ever gets. That, the moment you choose to use your phone whilst driving it's not only you but you are endangering everyone around you. I don't understand why is it so difficult to fathom? How important is really that call or text that one has to risk at so many levels? For texting, there are apps for calling there are hands-free gadgets. People seem to spend a fortune buying expensive phones but never pay to buy an app or headset... that's the epitome of stupidity.

Saw a motorbike patrol cop today. One hand on the throttle and phone in the other texting or facebooking or whatever he was doing. And his riding was bad. He was swerving everywhere. If the people who are supposed to uphold the law don’t follow it themselves, how can there be any law.

      I am attaching the route going to the lake. However i plan to take the Route B which crosses a wadi and just drive through it. 
      I have taken the route before through that wadi but half way only. This time i am planning to cross it and connect on the main road going to Hatta lake. 
      If any one is interested can join. Meeting point is the only ENOC station on the E611 at 6am.
