    Very true Signe.
    Almost daily I see a driver texting on the way to work. They are stopping abruptly and drifting into other lanes.
    Usually it’s a younger woman and I’d put her in jail if I could.
    REALLY? Is it an emergency?
    If so, PULL OVER!
    They should make texting and driving the same as a DUI.

    Fort amusant.


    And I agree, it’s almost always a young woman. Or an older woman. Or a young man. Or an older man.


    From what I’ve seen, I assume the law requires drivers to keep their cellphones next to their ears so they can hear about any traffic problems or road hazards.


    (I don’t drive, myself, so I don’t need to study the driver’s handbook, I just go by what I see everyday.)

    Then you must be all for state laws banning texting and talking while driving.

    Feh. Spend a little time in the Middle East and you’ll know what texting while driving is like.

    US driving is degrading towards what you find in third world countries. They text, read papers, do make up, and many have a cell hanging out of their ear. To make it worse, there are more really aggressive drivers who tailgate mercilessly and do scary lane changes because they think they can drive 20 mph faster than the flow of traffic on a crowded expressway. Truck drivers used to be very careful and polite, now they are just like the rest of the pack.

    My state instituted those, though I’m not sure why. We already had a distracted driving law on the books.

    Years ago I took a taxi to a party (because I’d be drinking) and the taxi driver had the sports page spread out on the steering wheel while driving. (he was an immigrant who didn’t speak English)

    Ted Lind: When I was a child, long-haul truck drivers were called “knights of the road” for their willingness to help vehicles in trouble. Now they have such unrealistic schedules and so little job security, they just plow through everything and are rarely stopped by police.
