Default Texting while driving........

This is what happens when you text while you drive.
I was slowing down to make a left turn, had turn signal on and this dumb lady was texting and did not know I was slowing down and hit me, broke my bumper and hers was broke too

Be sure to sue her for pain and suffering.

Sorry it happened to ya, but better in a semi than on a bike.

The other day I was turning left in the median across a 4 lane highway. A car was coming right at me from the road I was about to turn onto. I'm in disbelief as this car isn't slowing as I'm honking and screaming profanities at the top of my lungs.

I ended up looking into the oncoming lanes and saw there was only a cement truck in the slow lane so I gunned it going down the highway the wrong way in the fast lane until the cement truck passed. I then pulled a quick uee in behind him and turned off on my road. The driver was an old lady mouthing her apologies.

I can't bring myself to get too mad at people who just suck and realize it. OTOH, if I had someone rear end me while on the god damn phone I honestly don't know if I could prevent myself from feeding it to them.

I'm glad that's all that was damaged. However, I bet her bumper sustained more damage than yours did. Perhaps that'll teach her.

Unfortunately, even if she tells everyone, it won't help others to wait. You can repeatedly tell a child not to touch a hot stove, but they won't believe you until they touch it.

Got hit by an 18 year old girl on the phone and I passed up the opportunity to sequester her phone. That will not happen again. Held as evidence.

That's a good start, Infy. A while back, I read the result of a study that found that for one to have the maturity of a 16 year old in the mid 1950s (me) today, that doesn't happen until age 26. Therefore, no drivers' license until age 26.

No way will I agree with this. The 18 year olds are just as variable in their attention to their surroundings as the 30 or 40 or even 50 year olds. Do you want to ban all cell phone users? I could support that, but I cannot support anything based on age. I own a cell phone, as most of us probably do, but I have no sympathy for someone so tied to their phone that they are ignoring the world around them.

Why make all cellphone drivers/users pay for the actions of 18 year old females? Just ban 18 year old females from driving and the world will be a better place. Until they learn their BFF isn't worth killing people over, they don't need to drive. 17, sure, no problem there. 19, sure, no problem there. 18, they are too emotionally invested in their BFFs to pay attention to anything around them.

You don't have to agree with it. It's law. At least it's going to be when I'm president.
