Think you summed up my opinion pretty well. May be right, may be wrong, who knows, but its my opinion.
And regarding texting in general... if I am not mistaken, there have been some rather recent horrific crashes by people texting...
Frankly I am of the opinion that the issues of cell phone distraction are underplayed as everyone believes they CAN "get away" with it... "just this once..." and that the reality is that there are more close calls and minor crashes caused by distractions such as cell phone use, GPS use, even fumbling for radio buttons than many of us care to admit.
But apparently some here require actual "smoking guns" before admitting this. So we will have to wait... for data to eventually be collected, compiled and graphed some time in the future, before some will admit that "ya know, that is a problem."
Well I am definitely going to quit riding while flying.
But yeah if i flew it would be annoying to be locked in a tube with 40-50 people talking to themselves.Something to be said for texting I guess.
Flying sucks now-greyhound buses without the disinfectant odor but with less comfortable seats and with poorly mannered passengers who can't handle their liquor
Now if only the airport concessionaires would turn down the volume of the ever present TVs blaring the news, and TSA would stop announcing the same old warnings every 15 minutes. It might make waiting for a delayed departure somewhat more bearable.
I could agree more with you, in only that I do not like using the detection of automobile move movements past 15-MPH, through entertainment devices (broadcast videos and/or conversations <phones and Etc.>) and shutting off, because I do not trust such actions would stay to just shutting off all the entertainment devices (broadcast videos and/or conversations <phones and Etc.>). The same reason I do not trust (ONLY reason I do not use the following device) I think it is Geico insurance corporation's costs through miles travel and quality of driving device that insert underneath the dashboard.
But you are 100% right, if it was not for giving a revenue avenue for The Capitalist Multinational Businesses that make and sell the entertainment devices (broadcast videos and/or conversations <phones and Etc.>) lobbying all levels of The USA governments, then this problem would not exist!
No cell service in this part of WV.
I have to wonder if someone has researched the auto collisions in this area and see if it's per capita rate is lower than others.
