No texting while driving law is absurd

Is texting while driving any worse than putting on make-up?

    I think me being on the road regardless of what I'm doing is enough of a hazard in itself. I'm a woman. It happens.

    I drove from Chicago to Detroit last night and EVERY single time I came up on someone who wasnt going the speedlimit, who was wandering off the road, and/or those who didnt move when the light turned green...they were all playing with a phone. either talking or doing something that looks like texting, checking mail..something. This drives me crazy and its one of my biggest pest peeves.

    When you are driving you are controlling a vehicle that can very easily kill someone. Most of the people on the road are barely fit to drive when they are doing NOTHING else, let alone trying to talk or text at the same time.

    Most people dont have any real need to talk on the phone or text when driving. These people driving 25 year old cars with parts dragging on the ground arent surgeons talking someone through a life or death they dont need to be taking any attention away from driving.

    It's simple - when you are in the car you drive, period.
    Not eating, shaving, reading newspaper, putting on makeup, texting,
    e-mailing, cell phone , etc., etc.
    Just drive.

    If something is that important that you need to text while driving the safe thing to do is pull over for a minute or two and take care of business. It just isn't worth the chance because is those fractions of a second that your eyes are not on the road an accident could occur that wouldn't have had you not tried to text while driving. Not only should it be a law, but additional activities should be included in the legislation, like driving while make-upping, driving while speed-loading a Big Mac in your mug, and other activities that have caused accidents, as well as motor vehicle deaths. If texting while driving is that much of an emergency, then you need to pull over and do it, period.

    Have you seen the horrible bloody e-mail going around of the boy who was texting and went over the center line and underneath a tractor trailer? They warn you about the last two. The first one shows the supper half of his body lying on a black body bag and the bottom half being dragged by his legs to put with the other half? Wonder how many parts of a second, he took his eyes off the road? This last photo shows all of his insides hanging out. All those too hard headed to listen should have to view this photo. Send me your e-mail via my site and I will send it to you. I promise you will think more about texting and driving.

    just because you suck at multitasking doesn't mean I do. Blabbing to the person in the seat next to you while tuning the radio is more dangerous for most then me looking down at my phone.

    I drive 4 hours a day on the 10 years not even a speeding ticket. just because you dumb kid f'd up shouldn't cause me issues...
