Ditto. Mine actually has the capability to text, but I have the feature disabled. And as much as I ramble on here with my fingers, it's probably obvious I'm not anti-text. But it seems to me that stabbing out "how r u lol" would get a little old after a while.my phone can do 2 things. make calls and take calls.no
texting here. if you want to reach me--call.
So today I am out and I am riding next to this guy for just a bit and he is texting and driving. I am next to him at the red light and I mention to him how stupid and dangerous it is. This is a guy in his 40s, so I stay away and I'll be damned he slams his brakes on at the next red light almost nailed the car in front that decided not to go through the yellow. I told him to stop texting and learn how to drive which he then informed me I am number one in his book. Or at least I think that is the finger he was holding up. Unfortunately we cannot save the stupid, only pray that we can save ourselves from the stupid.
Happy 4th to all. Be safe.
I don't think I'd kick a car that drifted toward me if creating more space and blowing the horn was an option. Startling a distracted driver at that close of a range could have some serious negative consequences. I spend as little time as possible beside and in the blind spot of motorists. I doubt very seriously I would ever be in a position where a texter could drift into me. I'll likely know they are distracted before I get to them or before the get to me. When traffic conditions allow, I build a reactionary bubble around myself. I move through blind spots as quickly as reasonably possible and don't hang out beside other motorists. That seems preferable to kicking a car that I shouldn't have been beside anyway.
