Bad drivers will always find a way to be distracted. ?How many accidents have been caused because the driver was fiddling with the radio, or fishing around for their favorite tape or CD? Or yelling at their kids or spouse? Or putting on makeup? ?Or, my personal favorite, reading a book propped on the steering wheel
!!! ?It is much easier to blame a device (Cell Phone, etc) than to admit that we have many, many people driving who really should not be! ?Some of thes new navigation systems, etc, that are being installed in cars really scare me. ?To think about these people who "can't walk and chew gum at the same time" driving a car at 80 mph while scrolling through a menu on an in-dash navigation display is a really scary thought. ?
We can legislate against various "devices" from now until forever, but until we do something about improving the quality of the driver's behind the wheel, we will still have problems.
