    Doesn't surprise me at all. Saw a guy on a bicycle last week doing it as well, no hands on the bars. They walk among us. Scary stuff.

    Everytime I read some of these posts, I think back to the time I read a 1958 car magazine article entitled "Death By Distraction", and the article fostered the idea that the new fangled push button radios were causing drivers to take their attention off the road. The transition from reaching out and instinctively grabbing an easy to find twist knob was being replaced with a system that made you look.
    1958 was the time before seat belts and collapsible steering columns.......among other things.

    Local LEOs have been out in force this week nabbing distracted drivers. I observed a motorcycle cop catch a young lady talking or texting on her cell phone yesterday. She was actually behind him as they were stopped for a traffic light and he saw her in his mirror. How dumb can someone be to think they can't be seen if they're behind the cop? DOH!

    You are assuming that she was paying enough attention to her surroundings to have even seen or noticed the cop in front of her.

    Sometimes the thoughts in my head get bored and go for a stroll out through my mouth (or fingers). This is never a good thing.

    Texting is here to stay unfortunately. But don't worry it will be a lot safer when they iron out all the details with the self driving cars.

    She was in her own little world & no one else mattered. These days it's more important than ever for those of us that ride. To pay attention to everyone & everything around us. Be careful out there guys & gals.

    Actualy texting could be stopped! There are apps that can sense when the phone is moving faster than a walk (pokemon springs to mind). Just have all the carriers and manufactures push a down load to all phones, that shut off texting when the phone is moving faster than a walk.

    Kids in the back or the girl in the passenger seat, oh well!! I spent many an hour in a car with a pretty girl without texting, and my kids spent many a trip in hte back seat without a cell phone handy.

    I wish that more states would make using a cell phone without a handsfree device a primary offense.
