Eddie Adams from Torrance: So if I'm driving in NJ , listening to Rush Limbaugh on the radio, he can be sued when he sends me into a murderous rage and I plow into a farmer's market? Certainly, he knows that many of his listeners are driving and he's therefore electronically in the car with them.How about Justin Beiber? He records those insipid songs knowing full well that people are going to listen in the car, get distracted and run over school children.
mainstreet62: So...what happens when someone gets an Amber Alert message while driving?Is it the kidnapping victim's fault?
HotWingConspiracy: You're kind of a raging asshole, eh?There is some daylight between banning radios and not pumping sound directly into your skull, but I get that it's hard for infants to discern these things.
Baron Harkonnen: HotWingConspiracy: You are robbing yourself of one of the senses that might keep you safe on the road.Dimensio: I concur; your enjoyment while commuting is substantially more important than is the ability to hear the sirens of emergency vehicles.So what you guys are really saying is that you want all car stereos of every kind prohibited by law? Is that correct? Or are you just both idiots with no clear idea of what you're saying, but enjoy that satisfying rush of righteous indignation that comes with a snap judgment?I bet I know the answer to that one.
Latinwolf: wildcardjack: The general case must be made "How in the hell would I know what the recipient is doing?"This. When a person is sending a text, in most cases they don't know where the person receiving is. Really stupid idea.
The Goddamn Batman: Just repeat this mantra to yourself when you think about texting while driving: "I am not that important."
