When driving I play a little game. It's called Drunk, Texting or Talking. I look at the shitty drivers I'm behind and try to figure out what's impairing their ability to drive. Then I pull up to see if I'm right.
Most of the time it's talking on the phone. Every once in a while it's someone texting... Usually when it's texting it's a teen. I think teens shouldn't be able to drive until 18 but that will change once Miloh hits 16.
One of the things that scares me most about teens is their parents want them to be safe so they buy them an SUV. This makes it so much more dangerous for everyone else on the road.
So why am I rambling? It's that time of year again... I'm going to be scooting a lot. I had to wait a bit because it's been cold and the roads have been full of gravel from the winter. The gravel would be okay if my wheels were larger than 10 inches.
They finally swept the streets and the weather is nice... so I'll link to an older post that's my little plea to ask you all to not talk or text while driving. And remind you also that hands free is bullshit... It's not the holding the phone which is bad it's the distraction.
Here's the post from last year.
