Bad Drivers and Cell Phones unite to destroy the world!!!!
Okay, well maybe not really. Fact is though that the two DO go hand in hand. Yeah, I'm guilty of talking on my cell while driving too, but at least I use a headset or at the very least, that wonderful feature found on almost any mobile phone....SPEAKERPHONE! I don't answer the phone unless I really have to. Even then I find that people won't try to talk to me anymore when I'm driving because they know I'm not paying attention to them. Not sure what gave it away..."Uh-huh..... oh yeah?... right...Mmm Hmm" C'mon like you'd be able to tell I wasn't listening?
And then there are those drivers out there that really **** me off when they are driving with one hand on the wheel and the other one holding the phone to their ear. They tend to stray into other lanes, switch lanes without signaling (as their conversation is far more important that your well being as they sideswipe you), drive extremely slow, make left hand turns from the right lane (once again too busy on the phone to pay attention).... you know, the usual stuff. Lets take today for example. On the drive in I counted 3 people that were all almost causing accidents by drifting in to other lanes. Now can you guess what I saw when I caught up to them? Cmon, just take a guess Yup, you got it. They ALL had a damned cell held up to their head. Although one of them was actually drilling for oil at the same time too so he just didnt have any hands on the wheel Im waiting for the new, No Picking and Driving campaign to come out in the fall. Just watch, itll happen.
So basically, Id say that the two of these contribute to one another and youll have to take them both as to The biggest threat to safe driving. I challenge you guys out there that are always on your cell while driving to prove me wrong. Im waiting.
