And there is not a Tbird among them! Thanks to Chris ~ bird 60, for sending this to me in email. I tried to copy/paste it over here, but that did not work. Besides, I think this looks better in the web page I just finished creating for this... Enjoy!!

All I can say is, looks like some people need to learn how to drive!

my office is near a college campus.

Those pics remind me of what I can expect in about another month around here....

texting+driving the fast new car you received for graduating high school+not knowing where anything is = havoc and destruction.

And we all wonder why our insurance rates keep going up...

My apologies, Chris! I got my Aussies mixed up! I just fixed it. I guess I should not work on web pages late at night when I am half asleep! I wanted to get that posted for ya'll to enjoy and it took me awhile to create the web page, but I think it came out okay. Yup, Casey, the same thing is going to happen all across the country when colleges and universities start back up again.

they ought to throw folks in jail for texting (typing!) while driving.

It's akin to negligent manslaughter.

I ride a motorcycle several days out of the week and I can't count the number of times I've literally been forced out of my lane because the yahoo next to me is looking at their phone and typing messages.

usually during rush hour...while driving in the passing lane...and drinking coffee...

if they hit me, they may scratch their car, but I might not walk away from it.
yea - that's a good trade off for texting your friend about what they had for breakfast that day....

They've made cars too comfortable and easy to drive and people have lost respect for the damage they can cause.
They are piloting a few thousand pounds of steel and plastic at 70 to 80 mph and barely looking at the road in front of them. It's a very large and destructive missile...

sorry. i jumped on the 'ol soap box there. I was run off the road yesterday afternoon on the way home and it's been on my mind since then.

Wow, Casey! I am glad YOU are still with us and able to be Texting to US this morning! Yes, it is bad out there on the roads even more so with the advent of the cell phone. I see people all the time driving with one hand and holding the phone with the other going 70mph. When I drive, before I leave the driveway, I have my headset/boom combination on my head. If anyone calls, at least I can talk with both hands on the wheel, and paying attention to traffic. All states should have a law that if you use your cell phone, you must use a headset/boom combo..
