what a dumbass. Sounds like a Darwin Award nominee I saw a guy almost get killed because he was talking on a cellphone. Didn't see the red light, or ME, STOPPED, in the lane next to him. He glanced off the front of a pickup truck that was going through the intersection in front of me. Could have been worse... MUCH worse...

I almost broadsided a guy on a cell phone in an Infinity Q45 on a Saturday morning. He had a stop sign; I did not. I locked up the brakes on my F-150 and just missed him. He never even looked up. He has no idea how close he came to serious injury or death. I was doing 50 mph, which was the speed limit. Several months later they made it a 4-way stop. Someone else must have gotten creamed.

I made a bumper sticker up that said "THE ROAD WOULD BE A SAFER PLACE IF YOU HAD THAT CELL PHONE UP YOUR A$$".. Someone tore it off after about 10 days...

The worse thing is you don't know who is crazy any more. It looks like they are all talking to themselves.

Aw shucks, I thought you were talking about the lovely young lady who was giving me lap dances all Saturday night. [;)] She gave me her number, but it's out of service. [:(]
