Some tales, there’s simply not a variety of grey space.
Just a few months in the past, I used to be driving behind a automobile that stored lurching from one aspect of the lane to the opposite. It was fairly unhealthy. I believed the motive force was drunk.
Lastly, I handed the automotive, and I noticed that the motorist was driving with one hand on the wheel, while her different handheld a cellular phone aloft, the higher to conduct a Facetime chat.
She was driving about 70 miles an hour down the freeway. Yikes. Not good.
So at present, whereas there’s a common distracted driving invoice on the books, Michigan’s regulation pertaining to utilizing a cellular phone whereas driving solely bans texting.
A bipartisan set of payments has cleared the Home Judiciary Committee to additionally ban utilizing cell apps, social media, and video streaming on a cellular phone whereas driving.
Adrienne Woodland of AAA of Michigan says her group helps these payments. “Wanting away from the street for simply two seconds doubles the chance of a crash,” she says.
I conclude my anecdote:
This driver received off on the similar exit as me. So on the cease signal, I received out of my automotive and went over and tapped on her window. Her eyes received fairly massive, however she did not roll it down. So utilizing a mix of hand gestures and loud enunciations, I suggested her that her driving was not protected.
She did not seem grateful for my recommendation, in any respect. I suppose I ought to be grateful she did not throw her cellular phone at my head.
Sigh. It is exhausting being a curmudgeon.
