    My car stereo got stolen, and now I got nothing to listen to for a hour commute each day to work. I do have a mp3 player, but I have no idea if it's legal to wear a headphone while driving in Texas. Has anyone here actually got a ticket for doing this in Texas?

    Just wear one like you have a hands free phone thing on. Oh, and don't drive anywhere near me.

    The thing is, my T-mobile Dash's headset has 2 earbuds just like a headphone. Am I gonna get in trouble for using that?

    It's Saturday, isn't it? Go down and get a new car stereo. You can get a decent one installed for under $200

    I know, but it's a really old car, I doubt that it's gonna last more than a year. Also the neighborhood I living in right now isn't all that safe, If I buy another one right now it's just gonna get stolen again.

    Yeah, but don't worry, I always make sure your mom has plenty of water. :p

    I mean, car stereos? I honestly don't see the point. Pawn shops won't pay sh*t for a car stereo these days. I guess I just don't quite understand the inner workings of the mind of crackhead...

    Macalu just got owned. DAM!

    Do what my bus driver does, bring a portable radio, one with speakers and batteries and with a tape deck and use the tape deck adapter with your mp3 player. U can prolly find one for less than $20 at wallymart.

    I absolutely HATE people who drive with headphones on. Yes, it's illegal, and yes, it's distracting.

    I don't understand why it would be such a big issue to you. Unless it was you and your gf in the car, and she didn't want to listen to you talk about Star Wars, so she put on the headphones. Then maybe I would understand.
