What To Do About Driver Distractions
from the making-the-road-safer dept
Salon has a long look at the issue of driver distractions. As we get more and more gadgets, people are paying less and less attention to the road, causing quite a bit of damage. No one is exactly sure what to do about it, but some are trying to pass laws to deal with the problem – while others feel that existing “reckless driving” laws cover the issue. While in principal I agree that reckless driving laws should cover the issue, I’ve seen so many terrible things done by drivers with cell phones attached to their ears, that I think something needs to be done to at least alert cell phone using drivers of the dangers that they’re creating.
