Yes, Cappy, and I see a lot of bike riders who run lights and get into the middle of the lane not letting motor vehicles to pass. Sometimes I think they are unaware that they are riding a bicycle, not driving a car. When they act like a bicyclest and obey signals, I will be impressed.
As a bicycle rider, I see a lot of drivers on the phone. Often running stop signs and lights, swerving and such.
I you can live with yourself after causing a wreck that kills someone's mother, father or child, just because you can't resist tweeting while driving, then keep at it because the odds are not in your favor.
If you text while driving on the job and have a wreck, don't expect work comp to cover you. I'm not sure if your employer's insurance will cover any of the costs if you're driving a company vehicle, but you employers should find out and make sure you have a written anti-texting on the job policy signed and agreed to by your employees.
People need to concentrate on driving their car and maybe spend a little less time peeking in other drivers' windows.
Wish you had called 911 with the car's description and plate #s. Pretty sure I could do that w/o even looking down at my phone, as I know where the numbers are by touch. A preemptive call could save lives. Very much doubt he will read your letter, however well written, and say, "Why that was ME! I had no idea I was being a jackass and a wreck waiting to happen, but now I see the light and will reform my ways." Unfortunately, jackasses do not recognize themselves as such--but I bet he would have taken notice of a nice, costly ticket.
Well put lady, and right on target. Like poster above, call the partrol.
One of the most effective ways to stop poor driving skills is to post an officer on top of a bridge, hint K-10 with binoculars. Speeding, careless driving, cell phone abuse, no problem. Officer spots, pulls onto K-10 while a another officer pulls the lawbreaker over. Two patrol cars pull the offender over. Bada bing, done. If the offender fights the ticket in court, the police can seek phone records.
Why ban cell phones for all drivers?
and our personal rights keep disappearing.
This kind of behavior is becoming a real problem. I think driving while texting is just as dangerous as driving drunk and should be treated as such. How many fatal traffic accidents will it take before we get serious about banning driving with hand held electronic devices? Where are the Mothers against texting while driving?
I see them all the time in parking lots. They get in their car, throw it in reverse and then start texting. And indeed they don't use cruise control. They must be proud of their multi-tasking abilities...driving, texting and wrecking.
I saw a woman the other day applying mascara and weaving all over the place.
Well said by everyone .not as smart as their cell phones
I followed a "Wow!" employee doing the same thing yesterday through the construction zone of Iowa street. When it became two lanes again, I went around and saw him staring down at his phone, eyes completely off the road.. Wow, literally.
Next time call the police.
If they thought about it, they might be able to read a newspaper and care. Reality is they will be just another tragic death. Unfortunately, someone else might go with them. And stupidity trumps any preventive measures. At any rate, it's the taxpayer's bridge abutment.
Why smart phones aren't and Darwin was right.
