Imagine If Someone Hit Your Camaro...

....While texting and driving.


ARGH. It would piss me off so much. You can't do anything about it, no matter how much you take care, because some stupid idiot can't put down there cell phone for a few minutes to keep lives (and nicer cars) out of danger!

I was just reading an article, and they interviewed some people, who really didn't seem to car and said they could do it. This kind of mentality really gets to me.

Not sure if that's what happened, but I don't see how else he could've not seen me...

Well, I'll put it this way: if I don't die, the other driver will.
I might be boasting a more insignificant '98, but it's my first car. Anything happens to it and it's not my fault, hell will come to earth.

Saw that awhile back. Poor Camaro. Poor you. :(

At least you're ok. Did you get insurance for it?

They should put accelerometers in all phones like they do in the iPhone then they can have it so sending/receiving text messages can be disabled if you are moving more than 10mph.

using a cell phone while driving (either texting or talking without hands free) is one of my ULTIMATE pet peeves, IF someone takes out either of my cars and I don't die, the other drive, regardless of age/sex/race, I would be going to jail for sure. For they would be getting the beating of their life!

Sadly I do occasionally but I never do if there is anyone within 10 seconds ahead of me or when I'm near an intersection.

Wow... that is an incredibly well-made video...

This should be a mandatory viewing for all drivers on a yearly basis.

In New Jersey you'll see ladies put on their makeup, eat some Dunkin Donuts, text and flick you off all at the same time.

thats a retarded idea... what if your in the passenger seat and someone else is driving? if your going for a 5 hour drive with a friend then you cant text while the other person is driving?... thats stupid


and sadly, i also text while driving once in a while... but never when there are pedestrians or a lot of cars around... i usually type the whole message wihtout looking and then read it in traffic or at a red light to make sure its right... i need to stop tho, its a bad habit

NO ONE CAN DO IT SAFELY...it has been proven that talking or texting while driving is as bad, if not worse, than drunk driving...

I'm glad productivity is more important than a life to some people.

Seems like one of my bosses that thinks everything in life revolves around productivity and work.

I don't see how anyone can watch that very upsetting video and still think they can "safely text while driving"...

Lots of people think that they are safe to drink and drive but most people shouldn't do it .... Here in Ca. it is against the law to text or talk while driving but it doesn't seem to slow anyone down, people need to HANG UP AND DRIVE !!!!! If you are reading a text/book/newspaper, then you are not watching the road !
