To the editor:
People talking on cell phones and driving have gone too far.
It is dangerous for pedestrians, bikers and the drivers themselves. Everybody knows that a bike can't compete with a car, especially when the driver is talking on his or her cell phone.
I was crossing Woodland Drive on my 15-speed Bianchi mountain bike, when out of nowhere comes a red convertible. All I see, before I hit the dirt, is a man on a cell phone. Thankfully, I was wearing a helmet. Not only did I walk away with an assortment of bruises, but the shifter on my bike also sustained some damage. To say the least, this not only angered me, but it put my life in danger.
Now, whenever I see someone talking on a cell phone while driving through my neighborhood, I just frown and think about what I could do to change this problem.
