when will people learn not to text, check emails, tweet and facebook while driving.
its becoming a worse epidemic than drinking and driving.
imagine 4 kids run over left in a bloody bool of body parts and tissue because some jerk-off was texting some trivial nonsense like "where are you" or
"im on my way".
i already know of one person, a grandfather who pushed his granddaughter out of the way and got hit, because some asshole was texting thru a school
not only did that piece of filth take off, the grandfather died, the little girl is traumatized at losing her grandfather, probably blames herself
because he saved her and was hospitalized for weeks.
all that there is left, is a bunch of flowers and a sign that says hero, near were collision occurred.
i think that douchebag should have his phone taken away, pay for all damages and volunteer at an accident trauma centre or in the morgue were he can
see death for an entire year.
and why don't phones have a driving feature. they have an airplane mode, they should have a mandatory car mode.
all modern phones have gps, and if you're moving at 30 mph you aren't walking, you're not usain bolt, so it can easily block texting until the
phone detects you're not moving at an unsafe speed.
better yet, use common sense. its morons like these that cause idiot politicians to regulate every aspect of life.
