Distracted drivers

Posted on Wed, Oct 31, 2012 at 12:04 PM

What's with people being rude when I point out that it is illegal to drive and text/talk on your cell phone/hold the phone in front of your face on speaker phone while driving? I'm just trying to help you and everyone around you. I'm not trying to be a jerk, it's just that you truly scare me. I see people on their phones driving at least a few times a day. When I can I will inform the drivers that it is illegal. I get many similar responses, most of which attempting to defend their actions. I get sour contorted faces. I get the one finger salute. I get "Mind your own business." I get "I'm at a red light." Don't worry, I get it, you are special. Distracted driving is only a hazard when OTHER people do it. But not you. Riiiiight. Do the city a favour and turn off your phone please! Or I may tap on your window next! —TXTNDRIVELOL
