A few years back we got a phone call from our daughter. "I had an accident, WITH A PEDESTRIAN!"
Many terrifying thoughts thru my head. (how big a lawsuit)
Turned out she was driving and someone walked out between 2 cars and into the side of her car. He was texting. No damage to car. No injury but terrifying if it had just been a couple of seconds different.

May be a good idea, but why is it necessary? ( I know the answer)

A friend of my wife lost her daughter when crossing Coleman Ave when we lived in Mt. Pleasant. Unfortunately her phone she was playing with was more important....

One can only hope they are so enthralled with their phones that they forget to procreate.

Starting to see bike riders in traffic using phones. Stupid is as stupid does.
