The average teen sends and receives 100 text messages per day

Holy shiat. I doubt I'll hit 100 texts in my lifetime.

Look, if he was about to get into a car crash, he wouldn't text "WTF lookoutAAAUUUGHH". He'd just say it!

LordOfThePings: Were you dictating?


They should be. The technology is there now, no reason for texting while driving these days. Especially if you're on a touchscreen phone, wtf. It's not like you can feel the keyboard and continue typing while doing something else (similar to most Farkers ability to tell their mom they'll clean up the empty pizza boxes and "dirty" socks from the basement while never once stopping their typing to their WoW clan). If you're going to text in the car with an iPhone, do it at a red light at least.
 
2012-06-07 09:41:29 PM
I have sent exactly one text while driving, which was waiting at a toll booth behind several cars. Of course, any time I needed to move I would stop typing and come to a complete stop before resuming. Humans are stupid, and we make up stupid excuses about why we can do some obviously dangerous actions. Teenagers are more stupid, and they make up even more stupid excuses about why they can do some obviously dangerous actions.

almost got broadsided from a teen texting while driving as she went through the red light, idiot gave me the finger as if it was my fault for going through the green light

A former co-worker of mine's nephew was killed by a texting teenager.

There's a special place in Hell waiting for these farknuggets.

Might as well be masturbating behind the wheel.
Ought to make it a social offense.
You are now required to register with the social offender's on line registry.
And you may not be within 100' of a WIFi for evar.
Also, you must present yourself to neighbors and tell them what an insufferable dick shait farktard you are.

Too bad she didn't hit you. An at-fault accident where your ride gets totaled is just another way of saying "free car upgrade", all on her dime.

/YMMV, particularly if injury or death is involved...

To quote James Dean, the life you save might be mine.

A side contributor though, is cars that take most of the driving out of the hands of the driver. Driving feels safer, lacks consequence, so on and so forth. One good thwack at 30 miles an hour gives a good new appreciation of the physics of what you're piloting, and the consequences of not paying attention.

Older cars forced you to pay attention to what you were doing. Set the car up for the corner wrong, and you certainly knew it. This is not to say that older is necessarily better, but we've certainly forged a path to driving an insular, overconfidence-building series of vehicles. Technology is nice, but without skills, you're hanging your ass in the wind.

So far this summer I saw people doing the following stupid acts while driving down the freeway.

Texting
Reading a Kindle
Reading a News Paper
Eating Chipotle (or anything bigger than bite sized snacks in my opinion)
Putting on their Makeup in the visor mirror
Shaving in the visor mirror
Playing the Guitar (yes, the neck was poking out the driver side window, wtf?)

Mostly I've noticed this as people drift over into my lane while I'm on my motorcycle. As much as I enjoy riding, the roads are getting more and more dangerous due to inattentive/distracted drivers.

Something I have noticed over the past 5 years...Any time I am in the car with a girl they immediately start texting, Facebooking, using GPS, or some other shiat. They wouldn't have touched their phone in the last 2 hours, but the second they are behind the wheel, PHONE TIME!

ADHD-rattled morons. I swear the most inhumane punishment you could dish out to teens today is to make them sit on a chair in an empty room for 30 minutes and tell them to be perfectly still and quiet. I think they would actually explode.

CSB. My daughter just lost two friends who went to her high school. Turns out the driver and passenger were texting when they crashed the car. Killed them both on impact, which neither one of them saw coming (at least you hope).



/Maybe that wasn't so CSB, except it really made an impression on my daughter and hopefully a number of other kids at this school. Sad way to learn a lesson though.

Upgrade? Depends on what you're driving, sometimes the check from a wreck ain't as sexy as you'd expect.

They are likely under insured. Your best hope is that the parent's cosigned on the car and are listed on the title so that you can sue them to get your money.

/never put your name on the title to a vehicle driven by someone you don't trust with your life's savings

I guess I just lucked out the last time - went from a Kia hatchback to an Audi convertible without a penny out of pocket. Had it been the Audi that had wrecked, well, it probably would have been the opposite direction :)

trying to look at a fold out map with a passenger..
trying to eat stuff that required a plate and silveware(honest)
reading a book on the steering wheel

honestly its like some of the stuff you see people trying to do while they are driving is like wtf is wrong with you.
