Hardee's was right before Greeneville High on the right. I think it's a parking lot for the school kids now or something.

When I was younger, cruising town was on Main Street, from McDonald's, all the way through the Commons, and back. Eastgate Shopping Center was a stopping point and so was the Commons. Some would leave and ride over to Rogersville and others would go clubbing in JC but it was always bumper to bumper. That was 95/96 but it died down shortly after that. I knew a lot of people and there really wasn't anything bad going on. An occasional fight here and there and the cops would run you off for loitering. Times have changed.

Who should be held accountable for the generation of today? Seems to me that you stopped growing up and kept drinking. Hard to believe you actually think drinking and driving is even comparable to using a cell phone while driving. I applaud your generations parenting skills and values. The apple never falls far from the tree.

Not defending the drinking/driving but texting/driving is worse. Plenty of studies out there have shown this to be true.

That is only a study done on "Teen Drivers", which is a very small percent of drivers considering they are taking statistics for 16,17,18,19 year old people. They also only got the input from drivers who admit to texting and driving. That study seems bias and a scare tactic. Drunk drivers come in all ages. What study reflects a full spectrum of ages and incidences?

Well, the majority of "cruisers" were teens...so it is relevant to this thread.

I know there are other studies that have been done using a broader spectrum of drivers ages, I read some but didn't copy them. All the studies do say that teens do make up the majority of incidents but texting/driving is dangerous for drivers of any age. If you want you can find them as easily as I can.

Dated stats from 2009, can't imagine the trend has changed a whole lot.

Alchohol related fatalities-10,839
Cell phone related fatalities-2,600

Cell phone fatalities can't absolutely be proven. Alcohol accidents are proven with blood tests. Not taking up for drinking and driving, but some accidents aren't actually alcohol related, even though the driver is tested impaired.
I think the cell phone itself involved in a fatal accident would be sufficient enough to prove the cause. Whose to say that the impaired driver wouldn't have been able to avoid the accident without their slowed reaction times and poor judgement.

Ive had 3 cars come at me head on from the otherside of the road, Each time they lifted there head up from texting just before impact just in enough time to swerve back into there lane, None of these folks were drunk, I had one drunk driver encounter and all i had to do was stay WAY behind them, Point is, i almost lost my life with a kid in the car 3 times over texting as compared to the drunk guy in front of me swerving. and it is now illegal to text and drive, if you get caught you get pulled over and charged.

I am guessing that at least (probably more) 80% of drivers on the road now have cell phones with them. Being in an accident and having a cell phone on you is not enough evidence to be charged with a crime. Pretty obvious to me that you text and drive. Just be careful. It is a lot more serious than you seem to think. Your statistics are from 2006. I can assure you a lot more people are driving with them in 2013.
Are you being serious? I'm aware of how many people use cell phones nowadays. I didn't think I needed to elaborate on that statement. If someone is fatally injured, they will not be deleting their conversations and messages afterwards to hide the fact. On the same note, if someone is killed by someone on a phone, it works the same way using the VERY COMPLICATED AND ELABORATE TECHNOLOGY OF PHONE RECORDS.

Really, I have yet to understand all of this mumbo jumbo future talk. I copy paste like my typing tutor showed me.

The stats were from 2009. A 9 looks kind of like a 6, so I will let that slide. As for saying I text and I take the subject of using a phone while driving lightly, you make shit up. Please show me some kind of statement that even hints at thoughts like this. What is obvious to me, is that you were in such a hurry to prove someone wrong, you never bothered to actually comprehend the information from the link (2009). Before you click post comment, make sure you know wtf you are talking about.

If you were to take a drive around the same time the bars close up, you may be able to get a better grasp on the amount of drunk drivers here. Or maybe just check east tn mugshots and count the public intox and dui charges. I am not and did not say that texting isn't dangerous to do while driving. I simply gave someone some accurate and non-biased statistics. Because apparently to them, the leading cause of teenage death was also the leading cause of every age groups death.

For you to comment on Se7en's post about her cussing and name calling and then do the same thing (in abreviation), is a little hypocritical. Don't you think?
Not in the least hypocritical. I am not cussing anyone, calling names, or randomly posting profanity with no rhyme or reason. Cussing is a way to emphasize emotion and I use it for that. I didn't tell anyone to quit cussing. Please stay on topic and reply on the thread you are talking about. That makes sense, ye?

P.S.
A typo is hardly a comparison to you not reading something correctly and then throwing it back in my face smothered smugness and idiocy.
