Multi task?

[click image to enlarge]

This is a grab shot of the biggest safety hazard on our roadways today - - texting and driving. This car was operating erratically on Burgin Parkway. I had my driver pull around side of the car and the reason for the hazardous driving became quickly apparent: the driver was texting while trying to drive. I am in disbelief when I see drivers doing this and I felt compelled to document the insanity. Do you have a feeling about texting, cell phone use and driving?

It amazes me that anyone would attempt to do this. I try to stay as far away from anyone I think who is texting and driving.

Texting is flat wrong. Car phones should be hands free; where would we be if pilots were not allowed to talk to the ground and fly at the same time. I have to admit to using my digital camera while driving for grab shots, not often, and I hope with some care. Some shots I can't resist.

I think it's insane to text and drive. You capture it beautifully. His eyes are not on the road at all in this image.

I have two precious girls almost 13- I dread putting them on the road with numbskulls like this!

It is very dangerous, so now I only do it at a red light.

I don't understand the concept. Pick up the phone say what you have to say and get on with life. We had a story in the local paper about a man with an over $11,000 cell phone bill because of his son texting and Internet use on the cell. Texting and driving should be automatic jail time.

What a great idea to get a picture of this guy texting while he's supposed to be driving. I hope you give this picture to the Mayor & The Ledger . I'm noticing more drivers texting than not. Taking their picture is a great way to out them.
