    Since so many people seem to want new laws, how about this one. Anyone that causes an accident while on their cell phone automatically loses their drivers license for 6 months.

    Great advice!!

    To be a really good technician, the first thing that you have to do is understand how something works. Then and only then will you be able to make quick and accurate adjustments.
