This doesn't surprise me at all, but it does enrage me. Put down the damned pacifier and drive, you fuckwits. You can go for a few minutes without finding out what Kelsey, Chelsea, Lindsay, and Ashley are doing this weekend. You certainly don't need to instantly communicate that "taht ashol just curt me of!!"
. . . 48 percent of drivers between 18 to 24 and 27 percent of drivers 25 to 34 admit to texting while behind the wheel.
Seventeen percent of all adults surveyed say they have sent text messages, instant messages or e-mails while driving.
If the only people hurt or killed in accidents resulting from this stupidity were the texters I'd encourage it. Strengthen the gene pool and all that. But the anencephalous specimens engaging in this behavior are more likely to walk away from an accident while some other poor sucker bleeds to death around the steering column embedded in her chest.
