Very sorry to hear of your accident. 6 months in hospital? Wow, that
must have been awful. I'm glad you are mended and I hope you find
your new ride soon.
I can understand the police not driving around looking for phone
users who are coincidentally driving a car, but wouldn't it be easy
for them to check the phone usage of anyone causing an accident,
like the cager did to you? I'm sure the phone cos would provide the
police with phone connection details, times etc.
I think 'phone users who are driving' is the right way to look at
this, rather than the other way aound, given the % of attention
given to the phone.
....What about a gadget built into cars that detects that a phone is
in use in the car and automatically switches on the cars hazard
lights for the duration of the call? ;-)
....At least these drivers would then know that their turn signals
WOULD work if they ever found out where the lever is.
