Ok, maybe not a study but a demonstration to drivers.

It should be common sense.

This generation (my generation) really is not that bright. Sometimes I don't think we all have a thing called common sense. It's good they have demonstrations.

It's not just teens though there are to many idiots out there.

A few weeks back I seen a really bad case, this fella was on his way to work flying down the freeway and texting god knows who. I was the passenger in the vehicle beside him and not completely awake otherwise I would have done my duty and got his plate number and reported him. I don't know the guy but that sort of casual disregard for his life and those around him is reckless.

This scares me to death! I too have witnessed the stupidity of a mother in a 'crossover' type vehicle texting while driving with her KNEE AND SHE HAD TWO SMALL CHILDREN UNDER THE AGE OF 5 IN THE BACK SEAT!
I was mortified!!!

Thanks Chiefster, I have to say I get sick to my stomach and outraged everytime I watch that video. Those shots of the little girl asking mommy and daddy to wake up, and the obvious shot of the dead baby make me angry.

I get even more angry when I am driving and I see someone texting or talking on the phone. In California we have a law against it, but it doesn't stop a lot of people. There was a study about how people who talk on cell phones while driving are as dangerous as drunk drivers.

We already have enough brain-dead drivers out here as it is without adding cellphones, drinking and drugs to the list.

You're welcome, and I feel the exact same way man.
