I didn't read the news yesterday...you may have already caught this one. I've had countless near misses where I was pretty sure the driver was texting rather than driving. So I'm pleased they are enforcing this law. I mean, seriously, you can't wait until you arrive somewhere to pick up that phone? Someone could be killed for a meaningless text.

I should add that in her case, someone was killed. She actually got off pretty easy considering a life was lost.

Saw a bumper sticker last weekend I wish I had bought said," would your driving improve if that cell phone was up your butt?"

The girl who hit ran over five traffic cones placed 100 yards behind me, left slide marks for 120 feet, and totaled out my patrol car last year was texting while driving. It listed on the report that she admitted being distracted by her phone.

Wow, Sassy...how awful. I am glad you are here to tell us, but that is just awful. Were you in the car? I assume not, but wow. Sad

I don't get it either. I can't imagine risking lives to text. I have almost gotten hit by them, too, and it is just such a waste when it can be prevented so easily. No

And gus, I really like that one Yes

Sore neck and back for a few days. Nothing major. She moved my car forward about 10 or 15 feet, and ended up with my trunk sitting on top of her hood. Luckily, my putting the cones out as far back as I did gave her enough reaction time to keep from killing me.

Wow faint I'm so glad you weren't standing at the back of your car! I see people texting and I stay far away from them. I'm sorry you were hurt...so that's why you had to get a new car. Wow faint
