    The guy zigged when he should have zagged. MADD needs to now include texting along with the alcohol and drugs into their nonprofit organization policies. If they don’t they are engaging in hypocrisy of the highest order. Large cities with heavy automobile traffic are experiencing 10 times the amount of accidents from texting drivers than from those on alcohol and such. Way, way worst. Go figure.

      Not a bad idea. It is more normal now for people TO text while driving than NOT TO text while driving. It is an epidemic.

        Nine out of ten cars that go through our intersection are texting while driving. We see the shoot through all the time and they don’t look at all. It is just a matter of time before the next accident, or a child getting hit now that they are going back to school.
