I wonder how many women have died while putting their makeup on while driving?

I wonder how many people have died while eating their food while driving?

I wonder how many people have died while turning the radio station?

I wonder how many people have died while yelling at the kids in the back seat while driving?

I wonder how many people have died while picking their nose while driving?

I wonder how many people have died when they get a flat while driving?

I wonder how many people have died when they try to adjust the mirror because of some a-hole has their high-beams on?

WE NEED MORE GOVERMENT CONTROL OVER OUR LIVES!!!
