  •  If you're driving, turn off your phone. (8+ / 0-)

    Riding my bike to work this morning, I was nearly hit by an idiot yapping on his phone while driving. He suddenly decided to make a right turn and nearly knocked me into the curb.

    Just yesterday, the National Safety Council released its latest safety survey which showed that cell phone use while driving -- texting or talking -- continues to rise, despite efforts in many states and municipalities to restrict the practice.

    Here's the bottom line:

    Texting or talking on a cell phone while driving is selfish, dangerous and irresponsible! Don't do it! It can wait, and if it can't wait, pull over!
    I have told my wife and two adult children that if I die prematurely, it will most likely be at the hands of a distracted driver, particularly, someone texting or talking on a cell phone.

    It's just fucking selfish. Don't do it.
