I wish cell phones would be band while driving period! If these people have such busy lives that they need to be on the cell all the time, they should just stay home!
You are right, lots of idiot drivers are doing everything but driving! I'm really suprised we don't have more accidents!

"Banned" KTC. The word you are trying to write is "Banned", not "Band". Cute though.

If they would ban car radios that would help also. They should also ban thinking about what you have to do and force you to have a clear mind, yup that would do it

Stick to the story folks, someone makes a non-factual remark here and you run with it. Nothing was stated about eating or using cell phones, then we get into correcting spelling. The guy turned in front of the semi,and at 79 years old may have misjudged his distance or not paying attention, fortunately nobody was killed.

But..........if more people would pay attention to their driving then we would not have as many "accidents."

Point you all are missing here is that the semi passed in an intersection which is illegal! Yes the pickup driver screwed up by not checking his side mirror but in this situation you would be more worried about oncoming traffic not the guy behind you passing illegally. I came upon this wreck and am very surprised no one was killed let alone injured seriously!

The article states the camper was westbound. The pic clearly shows the truck was eastbound. How do you come up with "the semi passed in an interesection"? Checking his side mirror wouldn't have done much good since the truck was coming from the opposite direction. Who's missing the point???
