A new survey reveals that many Americans send and receive text messages on mobile e-mail devices while driving and in other dangerous situations.
Reuters reports that 77-percent of those polled admitted they had used such a device while driving a car.
Researchers also predict that within two years almost 40 percent of the corporate work force will be using mobile e-mail devices.
The president of the survey company says in an economic crisis, workers feel pressured to do more. As other people get laid off, the workers left behind see their responsibilities grow.
"People are going to have to do more than they are doing now," he said. "As people get laid off, the responsibilities of the company don't go away, but the people to do the work do."
The survey was conducted on 148 American adults from August 4 through August 26, 2008.
