When you don't know what you're doing, it's best to do it quickly.

And when Iím gone, you can call me foolish but hopefully not boring. I will have lived.

The more I learn about women, the more I like my car.

I see plenty I can't shoot. The penalty for operating a cell phone and a motor vehicle simultaneously is $340 + 4 points on my license.

The states needs to really get on the band wagon about distracted driving... as per usual too little to late...
Can't tell you how many accidents we get regularly that someone was focused on their phone screen and not the car ahead... nothing that important

There's talk of taking this violation to the next level, "Criminal Negligence"... that's a serious charge with serious repercussions! I'm all for it...

Agreed.... there is nothing so important that you have to use the cell phone... if you must, then get it hands free... but still doesn't help with those darn text messages... Only time you really need the phone is if you breakdown or lost... then stop... and make a call... 75% of our rear end collisions lately have been younger 17 to 25 year old females...

I see people of all ages and all walks of life messing with their phones on the fly... stupid doesn't discriminate and neither does the coroner!

Understood... in a smaller community with lower speeds like ours, 30 to 40mph...we see a majority of rear end collisions or Tbone accidents at the bigger intersections.... Bigger cities around us have freeways and higher speed 55mph roadways that we don't have... so the seriousness of the injury is lessened but the stupidity of texting and being on the phone while driving is a concern that encompasses all ages...you are correct...
