Carth: texting or emailing while driving should result in an instant 90 day license suspension if caught. If you have extenuating circumstances let a judge decide if it was worth risking everyone around you.
neuroflare: So I'm endangering everyone around me by changing the the internet radio station or downloading a podcast or reading a web comic while I'm stopped at a red light huh?
elchupacabra: And yet vehicle mortality rates are declining, when cell phone use is increasing -- just a quick GIS shows that. And we still try to justify increasing penalties for something that's NOT THAT DANGEROUS. Congratulations on fattening our police budget.
wildcardjack: It's three miles and nine traffic lights to my gym. AND EVERY ONE OF THEM IS RED. So forgive me if I check my email at one of the red lights./Stop telling me "Why don't you just run three miles?"//You can't lift three miles.
