Driving and Talking On Cell Phones Cause Accidents

Original post made by Christine, Amador Estates, on May 17, 2007

Do people not understand that by talking on the phone and text messaging while driving, is increasing accidents, including fatalities???? Please don't wait to hurt or kill someone to be aware, hang up, and drive.

Christine - Great post, but it's not just cell phones. I've seen people shaving, eating and, of course, putting on makeup. One guy had his laptop on the dashboard, typing with one hand while driving down 680!

Multitasking is wonderful, but not appropriate while driving.
