EVERY SINGLE cell-phone moron thinks that THEY'RE the exception to the distraction rule. "Hey, I'm not distracted, I'm just multi-tasking! I'm cool with it! Got reflexes like a ninja! Don't tell me how to drive!"

I just watched a woman run a stop sign yesterday while gazing into her cell phone. I'm sure she thought she wasn't distracted, no, not at all.

This is a very dangerous intersection. Is there just assumption someone involved was on a cell phone or is this fact? I am very sorry for this man's family, what a terrible loss.

A Federal law should be passed that would stop cell phones from operating after moving more than 5 miles per hour. Only a 911 call should work after that speed.

Write your congressman, demand this law!!!

It's stupid morons that think they can multi-task that kill motorcyclists. I'm 19 years old and I know how stupid and dangerous it is to multi-task while drivin. Ane another thing it isnt the people drving cars and trucks that gets killed when they multi-task. The most they might get is a few cuts and bruises but its the motorcyclist they hit that gets killed.I'm a motorcyclist and i've almost been hit by these people that can so call multi-task while driving.

I see nothing about cell phones being involved. For all we know, could have been the motorcycle's fault. Dont jump to conclusions people.

If you have read the article on STLtoday .com, the police have stated that the distraction had nothing to do with any cell phone or texting. Please get your facts straight before berating other posts.
This is a tragic accident and we should be focusing on the family. My thoughts and prayers are with them.

Let me guess. You drive while running your mouth on a cell phone and you think you're such a good driver that you're not distracted.

How would they know? By asking the driver? "Oh, no, officer, I wasn't on my cell, it was just on the seat beside me, see? Right here. Oh, NO, I wasn't on it, no sir, no way."

We almost NEVER find out at the scene whether someone was on a cell unless the call is still active--i.e., if the driver is injured to the point where they drop the phone and can't retrieve it and turn it off.

The police investigating the incident clearly pointed out it was of no fault of the motorcyclist. Nor did they say a cell phone was to blame. No matter what the cause, the end result is the same. Slow down people and drive safely! Peoples lives depend on it.

I was in the car when the accident happened. I was not the driver. BUT I do kno that the driver was NOT on the phone. This is very hard for all of us. I am the one who got out of the backseat and saw everything before anyone else did. Stop passing judgement. The driver was my best friend. Don't talk shit when you do not know anything about the story except that a man on a motorcycle was killed by a car. I just found out he had a wife with a baby on the way and children already. My heart and prayers go out to them soo much.

If you were a passenger in the car then why don't you tell us what the driver was arrested for and clear it all up for us.

thank you.
