Put your phone down and DRIVE

Grrr...I cannot stand when I see people texting and driving. Especially when I am in the lane next to them and they start to drift over towards me. Seriously, in what world do you think it is okay for you to take your eyes off of the road and be preoccupied with something other than driving?

I see this every single day! Aren't there laws against this.

Do you have texting laws in your state? Am I alone in thinking this way and just being hyper sensitive or do you see people texting and driving a lot too?

In Ohio I do believe they have laws against texting and driving. I agree with you it is aggravating when I seen people doing this also. It only takes a split second for them to look away and cause an accident!

Nothing is important enough for anyone to text and drive. Honestly, when I see someone swerving while they are driving and texting, it makes me want to call 911 and tell them the driver is driving erractically and endangering others.

In North Carolina I know we do but you still see it everyday. I don't think you are being hyper sensitive at all because they are endangering someone else.

 In Ohio it is against the law to text and drive.

 It is in Michigan. I once was driving on the freeway on my way home from visiting family, I was on the final 13 mile stretch before getting home when this truck in front of me slammed on her breaks, causing me to nearly slam into the back of her, she was answering her damn phone! Stupid people shouldn't drive!

I see it all the time. I think in MI you can't even talk on the phone while driving. Not sure though.

That is crazy. Some people have no common sense.

Please tell me you are joking! Shaving and brushing their teeth. Why not just get up 10 minutes earlier in the morning.

So I could possibly be injured in an accident because someone was shaving in the car. Crazy.
