She didn't learn anything, what with the whole being dead thing.
 
2012-03-05 10:36:55 PM
Was she driving and texting, or driving and dying her hair?

In the first photo I was like "I'd hit that", but then I was like "wait, that was a MySpace angle."

Aww, she was cute too, particularly with the curls in the first pic. I don't know what it is with that hairstyle with the big curls around the neck but it is fantastic and more women need to use it.

Also very cute that the parents feel their bad parenting and bad judgement from their kid will now result in affecting us all.

Yes, texting while driving is bad. But yes, it weeds out the idiots.

At least she only took out her own literally-too-retarded-to-live self, instead of an innocent third party.

Thankyou, Darwin. You do good work.

I normally would get all annoyed by these crusading parents who are trying to make everyones life change because thier daughter was too stupid to realize she was endangering her life even AFTER she realized she was endangering her life, but...

Should we even need laws for this? Common sense dictates you dont take you eyes off the road long enough to check facebook, even at 20 MPH.

/ if it were illegal, would it have stopped her from doing it?

very obviously, if texting had been illegal then their daughter would have in no way, shape, or form, texted, and passing laws to prevent others from doing it will bring their daughter back from the dead.

Once they make texting illegal, no one will text while driving any more. The same way that no one uses illegal drugs any more since Uncle Sam outlawed them.

Probably already was illegal. Many jurisdictions have laws prohibiting "distracted" driving.

Parents hope to ban driving while texting in Idaho
Current law only bans distracted driving


Only by complete cognitive dissonance could you assume that this crap isn't distracted driving. Also, facebook isn't texting, so the current law covers this and the proposed law might not if it's actually only about text messages, depending on definition.
 
2012-03-06 12:42:16 AM
I'd like to point out that if driving while distracted is illegal then driving while texting should already be covered.
 
2012-03-06 12:42:35 AM
Want to change people's minds? Show accident and morgue scenes photos of this before cleanup. People will pay attention if they see a gruesome mangled corpse of a formerly beatiful but apparently clueless young woman. Nasty? Sure. Shocking? Of course. Memorable? Fark yes. People won't be able to erase that from their minds easily.Now, if you don't want that to be you, pay attention. Cars move very quickly and other vehicles can be unpredictable. Don't make it worse by creating a visual distraction yourself.

According to the article, it was illegal. It states tehre is already a law covering inattentive driving.

FTFA : Now, Ms Sauer's grieving parents are hoping to use their daughter's tragic story as a way to change driving laws, and make texting while driving in Idaho illegal.

Why do they think that will help? This girl was already ignoring laws when she crashed. She was speeding, at the very least. When you're a dumbass, and you're not going to follow the law anyway, then passing more laws isn't going to make a bit of difference.

I don't like idiots who pay more attention to their phone than their driving. But I'm under no illusions that passing a law is going to fix that problem. And I suspect that if it's illegal to text while driving, they'll continue, but they'll try to do it with their phone in their lap instead of holding it up in front of them, which means their eyes will be even farther away from the road.

It sounds like she was replying to something. I would hate to be the person she was replying to.
 
2012-03-06 12:43:54 AM
She was driving late at night down a stretch of flat highway, and was messaging her friend on Facebook about the Denver Broncos football team.

Her last message was: 'I can't discuss this now. Driving and facebooking is not safe! Haha.'

I'm going to stand with the "cold-hearted" weeds-out-the-retards crowd on this one. Except now, of course, one of those texters will hit either me or a loved one or someone who could be a loved one.

So I guess I'd better not stand anywhere.

Taylor Sauer, a teenager who was texting every 90 seconds during her four hour commute from Utah State University to her parents' home...

...was texting on the long drive to her parents' house to 'stay awake,' her father Clay told the Today show


A four-hour commute??? Don't they have dorms at Utah State?

Texting while driving may have been the immediate cause of the accident, but responsible parents would never put their child in the position of driving for four hours after a full day of classes. If the break isn't long enough to make the trip on Saturday morning after a full night's sleep, better to just stay on campus.

That part of the road is 75mph. So while she was technically speeding, that's on the extremely low end of the spectrum.

I really hate to be like this because I think creating more laws often times causes problems, but they should have automakers install some sort of blocks that kill texting and data streaming on phones or some sort of block similar to that. I see 4-5 people a day on the interstate going 80 mpg texting or reading their phones and it's honestly starting to freak me out (and I'm not one of those "oh noes" kind of guys).

There has to be some way to stop people from doing it. Maybe my idea stinks to high hell, but something needs to be done about this.

This article is an example of the only thing that will actually stop people from doing this. If you really want to stop people from doing it, let the cops shoot anyone that's texting and driving, as long as they have video evidence of that person's guilt. That way, they get to kill citizens, which is their favorite pastime, and we get texters off the road faster than natural selection. Win/win.

Ok so maybe my idea was extreme, but really, new laws will not work. People really need to be forced to stop somehow. The shiat is ridiculously dangerous. A few weeks ago I saw some asshole that was texting run some guy off the road because he forgot to take an exit. He crossed 4 lanes of traffic at the last possible second and almost caused a pileup.

Maybe people should start losing their licenses, not that it's going to help much either.

No shiat, Sherlock; I was joking. Even so, a) "commute" is the wrong word, as the author or his editor should have realized; and b) my last paragraph still stands.
