    Man drives $1m Bugatti into marsh

    Is driving whilst using a mobile phone not an offence in the US?

    Personally, I hope the salt rots his car in front of him....

    Yes, in some states.
    No, in others.
    Also, in most states it is ONLY a add on if being caught doing something else that is illegal. But texting in most states is illegal.

    Bottom line, some people just do not care and will do it any way.

    And apparently here in Alberta there is no law against driving like an idiot.

    A picture would describe this better but
    Yesterday, we followed a car that was driving "sloppily" for lack of a better term. We assumed it was because the driver was incredibly short since the head that was visible was shorter than the head rest on the passenger seat.
    When we came up beside the car we could see that in fact the man had the seat fully reclined and was driving that way!
    Oh, and yeah he was talking on a cell phone as well *shudder*.

    In Massachusetts, they are CONSIDERING making cell talking and\or texting illegal. These things take time, you know!
    Meanwhile people are driving off the road, into storefronts and buildings, crashing into trees, etc.
    They ARE working on a bill to re-test "elderly" drivers because they think the elderly are the real culprits in the rash of accidents here. Right!

    Long ago, there was a time when men cursed and beat on the ground with sticks. It was called witchcraft.
    Today it is called golf!

    You should have asked him if he was having phone sex, or was that the way he always drove...

    A lot of the YOUNGER and one trying to look "Cool" have their seat back and tilted, with or with out cell phone. It goes with the low hanging pants, with the shorts or even the buttocks hanging out.
