Ha ha ha

It's just the other idiots out there that can't text and drive, you will be okay.

23 year old blew a stop sign and nailed my wife today.

He never saw her or the stop sign, but I am sure carrying on a conversation with his thumbs was more pressing at the time.

At least she is okay.

Just gave the car an oil change and the tires are like brand new.

*sigh*

all it takes is one second of not paying attention and you can pay with your life or someone else's life.

Will the proctologist be able to successfully remove the cell phone?


Cause that should be the major concern of people who do things like that.

Glad your wife is ok.
Distracted driving will end up being one of the things that pushes automated cars forward sooner than later.

Honk if you love Jesus.

Text and drive if you want to meet Him.

Good to hear that your wife is ok.

Over distracted driving idiots yeah I guess, but overall I dont want shit to do with an automated car, and hope I never have to share the road with one.

Glad your wife is OK, OP.

People that text and drive should get the same punishment as a DUI.

Especially when there is injury or death.

This. I think I'd rather share the road with drunk people than the texting people I have to deal with nowadays.

I'd much rather share the road with an automated car that won't wander into my lane as the driver reaches for his coffee or rear end me because they driver is playing with his phone.

Absolutely. I would guess that more than half of all accidents are caused by cell phone addicts.

I was not there, so I'm just going by what the witnesses were telling her.

Glad your wife is ok. My truck is 7 years old, I need to get rear-ended by a texter, but I live in San Antonio. I would probably be hit by an illegal with no insurance.

witnesses is good enough for me.

Hopefully he has good insurance.

did he rear end her, she hit his side when she had right of way, etc???

Too bad law makers won't give any teeth to texting and driving laws. And if they did ARF would complain it's too harsh.

I say treat the shit like pretty close to DUIs punishment. But, thats not happening, so make sure you drive defensively.
Link Posted: 10/31/2015 5:00:30 PM EST
Nobody besides a fucking idiot thinks that texting and driving is ok. I mean a fucking idiot that is like a super hero to fucking idiots.

This. And I really do wish states would enact texting while driving laws and use them for something besides revenue generation. A thirty day license suspension for a first offense would be a good starting point if they're serious about safety.
Link Posted: 10/31/2015 5:26:11 PM EST


I make a point of giving the finger to anyone I see texting and driving.

He came off of a side street, through a stop sign, and across her port side bow. Cop told her that he was 100% at fault.

LOL

LAAAAAAAAAAAAANNNA!!

All I could think of when I saw the car was:

"My old man is a television repairman, he's got this ultimate set of tools. I can fix it."

Insurance should give you about an extra $350 if the tires have tread above a certain %, if they total it out.

Was rear-ended at a stop light and had my car totaled out back in July. Tires were 850 miles old. Couldn't take them, but I got an extra $350 on the total loss valuation for them. Woohoo, I guess.

So your wife was rear ended by a 23 year old? I can understand why you are upset. I am glad she is ok though.

It was my nephew wasn't it. That worthless, lazy ass, multisexual, beta shit head has wrecked THREE vehicles and he is only 20yrs old.
He swears - lies - he wasn't texting. Every time I've seen him his dainty thumbs are furiously swiping across his phone. He rarely looks up and anyone. Somehow manages to talk while texting but never says anything of substance, much like a 14yr old girl.

Ya, I'm convinced it was my nephew.

This.

Glad she's OK. Maybe it's just me but in my daily routine it seems like drivers are getting worse and worse...and it usually looks like they're screwing with a cellphone when I see someone do something stupid.
