Being in the Body Shop Business we have done some major research on people having wrecks with the use of electronic devices while driving. We have narrowed down two things. They are taught at a young age and the problems happen when the hand comes off the wheel. Grandson Lane is helping with the illustrations.
Paw Paw I can't believe you would let Lane talk on the phone like that with out his seat belt on. Come on now. Safety first  @--0--0123

HA, They sure do start young now a days!  Just the other day my 3 y/o was driving her 3 wheeler around the kitchen.  She comes by me and says "look Dad" as she's driving around with both hands in the air.

When my kids were little, and we were in the truck by ourselves (that meant my wife was at home, tending the home fires), I would tell them I could drive with my eyes closed.  Since they were seated next to me, and could not see both my eyes, I simply closed my right eye.  they always wondered how I could drive that way.  I'm not sure when they figured it out.  I only did it on our road, where there was little or no traffic, without any cross streets.

I sure hope they outlaw texting here while driving.    My truck had 1200 miles on it. It was still smelling new.  I was parked off on the side of the road. Clearly off the road.  I had a 16 yr old girl come up behind me while she was texting on her phone come off the road and hit me squarely in the back of my truck while i was parked.  Smacked me like I was a target or something.  My brand new truck now had the bed of it sitting in the rear seat of my doublecab.    I got hauled off to the hospital with 2 broken vertabrae.     Cell phones need to be handsfree or NO use while driving.
