Yeah. Thank goodness we no longer have drunk drivers.

Like I said, as illustrated on this forum...

Apple Carplay and Android Auto come standard in alot of newer cars these days.

I personally use Carplay in mine, and although it has it's limitations - it really is a fantastic tool.
Even the new Goldwing has it installed!!!

This is a worldwide epidemic, and it's not being helped by phone manufacturers simply to continue their sales profits, public safety be damned.

I cringe every time I pass someone texting on their phones, and it happens so much now, I almost ignore it.

NOt to mention, the people who ride the left lane because they're distracted and talking.

What is TRULY frightening to me, is how the teens and 20-somethings will video chat or facetime WHILE driving.
Yep, THAT is why the phone is being held with two hands in the middle of the steering wheel.
OMFG.  :-[

Time to write your congressman.

Then you understand people's insatiable desire for self-driving cars.

Sometimes I think it is a marketing ploy to inundate your conscience with presence to the point of oblivion, so they can shove even more product down consumer's throat.
So far it has worked, despite efforts of responsible people to rein in the issue.
