    agree vs agreed

    My friend: I think that people who drive cars and use a mobile phone while they are driving, should be fined. What do you think?

    1. Me: Agree. (I agree)
    2. Me: Agreed. (Does "agreed" represent " I agreed"?)

    Are the above sentences both correct?

    I think they are both OK and understandable for spoken English.
    The second would mean: The statement is agreed. (Not "I agreed")

    Re: agree vs agreed

    I don't think many people omit the pronoun from 'I agree'

    'Agreed' does not sound natural in that conversation, because you haven't agreed to​ anything.
