Drugs don't make people stupid, people are stupid.
Devices don't make people bad drivers, they are bad drivers.

I'm prepared to get flamed.
Have a good day.
No flaming, you're just wrong. When you're driving just drive, I'm sure that person that you didn't kill will be grateful.

I moved out here in May and completely agree with you. Though I have to say drivers in CO in general are much worse than what I was used to in Pittsburgh. My daily commute downtown (10 miles each way) usually involves some type of evasive maneuver to prevent a potential accident.

We'll just have to agree to disagree!

If the traffic and road conditions allow I'll send a text or look up something. Just pay attention and look ahead. If I pulled over every time I had to send a text, email or take a phone call I would be working 24 hours a day. It's just as hard to change to station on the radio or mess around with unruly kids in the backseat, nothing ever gets said about those.
People die on the road everyday, even before cellphones were popular... Texting gets a bad rep because highschool kids generally suck at driving to begin with and compound the problem with smartphones and the like.


Have to agree with the Subarus.

It seems that most people here disagree, damn, in the minority again.

Then you should pull over to sneeze there should be no radios in cars or cup holders or passenger seats. This is only on of the things that take your concentration of the road. Enough with that excuse. It's the idiots that write letters and keep full conversations while driving that cause accidents. Looking away for half a second isn't going to cause an accident. It is simply doing that activity during an accident. There is nothing you could do in 0.5 seconds if you were paying attention that could have helped. If that were the case then NO ONE would ever hit deer.

I kicked some texting bitches mirror off last summer after she almost ran me over on my bike. I ride 90% of the year and I don't take kindly to it.
"We" as in my friends also find it fun to ride up on talkers and texters in groups and politely yell at them to put there phone away. We know and are completley aware that its harassment and have no intention of hurting anyone But its funny how fast someone will end thier convo when there is a group of ugly, bearded chopper riders staring at them.

Sorry, but this was the first thing I thought of after reading that.

I'm guilty of occasionally texting when driving. But only if I'm not moving.

Either way, the nerve to do it while you are driving other people? Fuck that. That's just plain disrespectful.

Man, I hate even talking on the phone while I'm driving. I drive a stick, so that makes it worse, but mostly it's the concentration thing. I just want to drive and listen to music. I can talk to someone else in the car, but it seems like it takes more concentration to talk on the phone (think I've actually read that somewhere, too). When I drive with a bunch of people in the vehicle, I don't even like being in charge of the iPod. I'll give it to someone else and let them play DJ.

So you can type out or read a sentence in half a second?? Nice... The thing I don't understand is, the objective of texting is to leave a message. Why can't people wait to read a message or send a message?
