Texting while driving

Posted By on Fri, Sep 19, 2008 at 7:03 AM

California has moved to ban cellphone use in train cabs after the gruesome commuter train wreck involving an engineer merrily texting while he drove.

Thought for the day: If it's not safe for a railroad engineer to use a cellphone for talking or texting while driving on a dedicated track, don't you think it's unsafe to allow talking and texting in motor vehicles on roads full of other vehicles?

A number of countries in the cheese-eating, surrender-monkey part of the globe have taken this common-sense step. Here, you'll have to pry cellphones from the cold, dead fingers of gabby drivers. And, sometimes, they literally do.
