Hello, I hope everybody involved makes a quick recovery. I hope the person responsible gets whats coming to them, has their license revoked and not given back! I have personal reasons for this, but it has got out of control, like many others here I see so many people on the phone while driving, no need for it, if you must answer a telephone call, cos at the end of the day that's what it is, not a personal lifestyle device, use hands free or voice control, only then if absolutely necessary. In certain European capitals there are street signs at the crosswalks advising drivers the pedestrians will be paying attention to their phones and not to what they are doing, I donīt believe the penalties are steep enough. There was an advertising campaign in Europe, pretty frank (link below). Not sure how much of a difference it made.
