    Default Texting While Driving

    Because I care about all of you and your families and this is a family sport I want to pass something on to you. We lost a High School girl from our community in an accident last fall. She was sending a text message and drove off the road. The video here illustrates how fast it can happen. Thanks to Liberty Mutual for bringing to my attention. Please share with your loved ones, especially young drivers.

    It's just stupid and pisses me off when I see it happen, especialy when its a mother or the same with young ones in the car. Up in Canada in Ontario it is now illegal to operate a cell phone while driving without a hands free device.

    I stand corrected, just going by what I was told when I was home for new years.
