I swear I heard a radio personality when news about the NHTSB suggested banning of text/driving.." well if it becomes a law I won't do it"! YES really. What is it with truly ignorant people who IGNORE the more fundamental laws of nature like oh for example: A car traveling at 30 mph travels in 44 feet on one second. reaction time from lifting eyes from texting to braking: 1.5 seconds. (accident reconstructionists simply to use a standard reaction time number, such as 1.5 seconds, when analyzing a case. Visual Expert Human Factors: Driver Reaction Time That means by the time a normal driver 1) raises their eyes from their texting 2) slams on the brakes They have traveled 66 feet. Using driving rules 1 car length for every 10 miles per hour and Average car length 13 feet that means at 30 mph means or 3 car lengths or ~ 40 feet. So our texting driver travels 66 feet before seeing the car in front and slamming the brakes on! BAMM!!! Before slamming on the brakes.. ACCIDENT!!! And that's assuming the driver is driving 1 car length/10 mph! Laws of physics and physiology supercede laws of MAN every time! BUT of course this radio personality LIKE almost all nanny state children KNOW that they don't want to get caught by a cop breaking the LAWS of Man!! REALITY CHECK Yesterday I was driving 50 mph and young tattooed girl was driving next lane beside me side-by-side.. NOT 5 car lengths from car in front.. AND TEXTING WHILE DRIVING! GEEZ... there ought to be a law!!! DUH.. there IS... LAW of common SENSE and golden Rule! If from pre-school and up, from 2 year old watching TV to advertising the same amount of time and money that was spent on "global warming" and "Greening" were spent on teaching people common sense.. i.e. YOU don't TEXT and Drive at the same time! You don't expect a cop on every corner to be as inexpensive as each of us having common sense i.e. don't text and drive... If that were the meme of the day constantly beaten into all of us again like global warming/greening.. THERE wouldn't be the need of a "law against..."! We'd be following "common SENSE" laws.. i.e. you can't stop your car fast enough if you are texting and driving for example!!!
