    Distracted driving (talking on a cell phone, texting, eating fast food, applying makeup, etc.) is more dangerous than drunk driving when BAL level are low. To the best of my knowledge, I have never seen a drunk driver, but I see distracted drivers weaving and driving erratically every day.

    To all of you talking and trying to drive: YOU ARE SLOWING EVERYONE DOWN, CANT YOU SEE PAST YOUR ARROGANCE AND REALIZE THAT? We honk at you, and you flip us off? whats wrong with you, did your mama drop you on your head? Well, there was an obvious reason for that Im sure, but please, put the phone down and drive!

    A story on distracted driving is done while driving and talking to the camera. The reporter spent most of the time looking at the camera not on the road. Horrible reporting methods here a story about what I’m doing.
