"A 19 year old girl ran a red light while she was texting..."
Nothing torques me off more than seeing this happen. So damn stupid to be trying to do this while driving. Makes it even worse when a classic like this pays the penalty. Glad no one was hurt, even the texting idiot. I wish I had a buck for every teenage nitwit I've startled all to hell by blowing the horn at them when I see it happening next to me. Not hard to spot, they drive like a drunk driver.
Makes me wish it could be disabled in some way while driving. The Garmin GPS unit I bought my wife will NOT let you punch in data while the car is in motion. Since most if not all new phones have GPS locators in them, if not full blown GPS function, I wish that'd be an option for texting. I'm sure it's because the keys for texting and phone function are the same and thus you couldn't use the phone either, but it'd be nice to cut down on distractions instead of adding new ones all the time.
