Question of the day
Monday, Jul 23, 2012
* In just the past six days, I was almost creamed by a driver who was on her phone (her SUV versus my little Z-3 would’ve been ugly), freaked out when a guy who was texting while towing a long trailer with his pickup lunged to the side of the road as I was passing him, and was almost wiped off the face of the Earth by a semi-truck driver who was swerving all over the road while using his mobile phone when I went past him.
Again, that’s just in the past six days. And those are only the most memorable because my life was put in jeopardy. I saw plenty more erratic behavior over the same time period.
* Drivers are generally idiots. But too often they become incredibly dangerous idiots if they text or talk on the phone while driving.
Here’s a hint: If you find yourself swerving or have been honked at more than once by drivers while you were texting or talking on the phone, then STOP TEXTING AND TALKING ON THE PHONE. Sheesh. It isn’t that difficult to figure out.
Unfortunately, too many people just never learn. And, frankly, I’m getting really tired of seeing my life flash before my eyes.
So, I was glad to see this bill was signed into law…
And just so I don’t jinx myself, let me confess right now that I have been guilty of texting while driving. I really need to stop doing that.
