I see them every day. They're at every stoplight, they're in every lane of traffic on the freeway, they're in every parking lot. All of them are putting my life and my family's lives at risk. I'm talking about distracted drivers, and they make me angry.
Here's the worst part: They know what they're doing is dangerous, and they do it anyway. They just don't care. Fox News reported on the results of research by AT&T:
In a new survey, 98 percent of motorists who own cellphones and text regularly said they were aware of the dangers, yet three-quarters of them admitted to texting while driving, despite laws against it in some states. Two-thirds said they have read text messages while stopped at a red light or stop sign, while more than a quarter said they have sent texts while driving.
That's simply staggering. If you extrapolate those results to the general population, we're talking about hundreds of thousands of cars, all of them ticking time bombs, waiting to go off and hurt you or family.
