Are they being sarcastic or do they really want us to text and drive?

Itís funny until somebody gets hurt, then itís hilarious

For about the last year I have seen more and more people testing while driving. I never noticed it before but now there is not a day that goes by that I do not see someone with their head pointed downward and their eyes clearly not on the road.
I am not in favor of a "Nanny State" in any form but if the technology is available to stop text messages in a car that is running (or moving) I am all for it. I mean, we have cars that can parallel park - don't we?

I don't think the sign from the funeral home will help because the people who need to read it will be texting......

Good night Chesty, wherever you are......

But what about the people who aren't texting, read the sign and feel compelled to text?

I like it, I have some friends and family who text and drive. Hope this makes them realize what they are doing.

Happy New Year to all.

Trying to drum up business.
My daughter had her car totaled by a guy texting. Shes stopped at a light and gets nailed. A guy told the police he saw the guy look at the phone right before he hit her. Never slowed down. Thankfully everyone was okay.

In one way, I appreciate the ones who wait until they are stopped to text.

But at the same time...the light is green DA, let's go!
buzz and bad primer like this.

Its not only yack'n or texting on cell phones, you can add the "do it all" center mounted dash contraptions to the list, radio, GPS, backup camera, etc.
I'm one of those who does the unthinkable when driving. If my cell phone makes noise I'll wait until I can find a safe place to pull over to answer it or call whoever back.
