Are you kidding me?
I don't get riled easily, but I was miffed. I mean, here is this guy behind me talking on his cell phone in really difficult rush hour traffic. His other hand is flying threw the air perfect for non verbal communication Not in a car. I don't know how anyone can drive and text or be on their cell while in this type of situation.
Perhaps I am more appalled by this because I have hands free in my car, so I am not tempted. I so had the urge to call 911. Maybe next time I will because there were countless times he got way to close to my car. I also think I was miffed because just three weeks earlier I had to get my car fixed because someone drove right into my car in a parking lot. Over $400 dollars later. Yes, insurance picked up 80% but still I had to pay the remainder and rental car fees. My insurance agent tells me these days it is very rare for someone to leave a note on your dash board after hitting you.
Moral of the story is don't do distracted driving, it's not worth it. Let's role model this for our teens that are now driving or the grand kids that are out on the road.
