Personally, I hate dealing with any electronic device, such as a phone while driving, well you have all the modern conveniences today, including all the fancy features in new vehicles that sync things together, hands free and all that, but I'm driving, please leave me the heck alone, most likely it can and will wait, too many other distracted drivers to look out for. The busy 2 lane road I live on, someone will dart out in front of you just to get onto the road when traffic is busy. I've seen many commercial truck drivers using a handset while driving, seen heavy equipment operators on job sites, using a hand set, you can't tell me its anything important, to have a casual and seemingly useless conversation, while operating anything, really, I don't care how good you think you are multitasking, have some respect for yourself and others, pull over somewhere safe, let it go to voice mail, don't put yourself or others at risk, it's an unsafe habit. If its an emergency, well now you're really distracted, you still have to get somewhere safe and you have to obey the laws, so what difference does it make, you are informed, but its no excuse to be stupid. You'll have to pardon me, having a strong dislike for those who do this while driving, your focus should be the road, and what you are driving at all times, safety, not some inane conversation about nothing.

I see a lot of things on the roads today, especially with commercial vehicles, heavily loaded, and these younger drivers, leaning them into turns, running too fast for conditions, now add other distractions? Really ? Just the other day, a truck blew a tire on the stretch of busy 2 lane road near me, it sounded like a full stick going off from 600 yards away, which is the actual distance measured using a range finder. This happens in an instant, and you want to be on the phone or otherwise distracted ? I've never heard one so loud before, then down the road it goes, whap whap whap...... driver trying to maintain control and get off the road. A good time to call someone and talk about nothing right ? LOL !!!! fire away now.....
