Drivers who call and text cause tragedies

San Luis Obispo



People who talk on the phone while driving, or crazier yet, type messages while driving, or eat a Big Mac while putting on make up in the fast lane; stop and think about this: First, you’re breaking the law; second, your insurance policy probably has wording that eliminates your coverage if you are involved in an accident while using your cell phone. Moreover, if people are hurt or killed because of your negligence, you could spend the rest of your life in prison or steering a wheel chair with your nose.


Witnesses to your stupidity, electronic timing devices in your car, and phone records will set you up for a life of pain. Is it really so important to make that call before you stop that 3,000-pound car you’re driving?
