I saw it on TV news today. Stay Alive, Don't Text and Drive. The life you save might be mine!!!! The roads are dangerious enough as it is already we don't need to make it worse. Stay on red alert all the time while riding your bike.
Personally I think laws need to changed. If you kill someone while texting or talking on the cell phone you should go to prison for 10 years minumum. You should loose your drivers license for ever. What is the replacement cost of a house wife, mother, father, etc.??? You should pay $$$ for the replacement cost of the person you killed.
About a year ago a young girl in her 20s passed me in her car while texting. She had 2 small children in the back seat both children in seat belts. Light turned red, I stopped and she didn't. She nailed a truck in the side. Now the 2 children have no mother.
About 3 years ago I saw a cyclist killed on a bike the cell phone driver ran off the road into the bike lane and ran him over. Killed him dead.
