Three-fourths of drivers surveyed in an AT&T poll admit they text behind the wheel, even though they know it's dangerous.
The study involved cellphone owners ages 16 to 65 who drive nearly every day.
Many said they believe their driving is not affected by texting.
More than one in four surveyed said they "can easily do several things at once, even while driving." And 43% say they text while driving to "stay connected" with friends, family, and work.
