Pet Peeve (Week #25)

Don't be stupid

(f/13, 1/50 sec, 48mm)


This is my pet peeve, too many drivers on the road are distracted with cell phones, texting and talking on them... 80% of crashes, and 65% of near crashes, involve some form of driver inattention within 3 seconds of the event...


Only 5 states prohibit drivers from talking on handheld cell phones while driving and 14 states ban text messaging for drivers.
