Almost got hit (again) today by yet another driver who was paying more attention to the cell phone than the fact that he (she?) was pounding down the road with two tons of steel at thirty miles an hour....
Please get our government moving on a law to prohibit use of cell phones while driving. Let's write letters....This has got to stop. We are losing too many good people in accidents...
There is already a proposed bill in the General Assembly that makes it illegal to operate a vehicle and cell phone unless it is with a handsfree device. Sadly, I believe this has been proposed before to our legislators but was shot down (or not acted upon) in the past.
Maybe this year will be the year to see it cross the Governors desk. (That and a few others Im following closely)
Talking I'm fine with, it's the idiots that text while driving that I hate. Can't tell you how many times I've had people drift at me because they were staring at a keyboard instead of the road. Really pisses me off when they give me a ****ty look because I hit my horn so they wouldn't hit me.
i heard somewhere that the human brain can only focus on one thing at any given time. and by that i mean a fraction of a second to the road, then to the music, then to the texting, then to conversation with others in the car etc. i think the less distractions the better.
