Makes sense, because that would have stopped her. Isn't there already a ban on driving 80 mph?
This is my nightmare. No matter how much I tell my kids not to, how do I know they are not? I guess you could say that about anything, but this just sits in the back of my brain for some reason.
Misanthrope side of me says: Good. Dumb slit.
Parent side of me says: Completely agree. Only thing you can do is raise them to know better. If they choose to or not is out of your hands. That's on them. You did good by letting them know early on that it's not a good plan.
That's why I got that Iphone XM dock thing for my chick... so she won't be tempted to text and drive.
Not to mention it seems to be a self-correcting problem...
75 speed limit in Idaho. Im just glad she didnt kill someone else.
Great so we can have "Taylor's Law". Sucks for the parents, but do you really think making texting and driving illegal would have stopped your precious angel?
I'm guilty of this as well, but it's usually at a traffic light or stop and go traffic. Taking your eyes off the road at 80 mph is suicide.
Smarter would be better driving training earlier in life, and mandatory 2-4 years of time behind the wheel before they get to drive.
Like college, you need 2-4 years before you are qualified for your occupation. A kid should start at learning to drive at 14 and not be able to get a license until 18 IMO.
Shit is dangerous enough as it is with so many distractions. I feel sorry for this family, because the girl knew what she was doing, but did it anyway. I bet that chick was a 200+ text a day kid since she was 15. So it just becomes almost an addiction to text.
I'll text while stopped also, but while driving the most I'll usually do is read them... this is when dictation comes in handy on my Android.
I've noticed that with the friends I ride with who still text, now instead of holding it up above the steering wheel so they can watch the road at the same time, they hold their phones down by their laps in order to avoid being seen... which of course is even more dangerous.
Ontario has graduated licensing...
Taylor was a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. She graduated seminary and loved being in Young Women
Well, she and I had that in common. Ba-da-bump.
The more I looked for other pictures of her, the less hot she got. So I stopped.
This one wasn't hot enough for you?
I've tried using Vlingo but it seems like it's always asking you to tap the screen for something so I'm still taking my eyes off the road to use it.
I always type one handed and holding my phone down beside me is how I've always done it. Those people that lean over the steering wheel typing on their phones scare me more than the one-handers.
When I use to text I would hold it along-side the steering wheel... seemed to be the easiest for me.
Vlingo has an "In-car" mode that makes it more automated. You say "Hey Vlingo" to wake it up, then "Text Jason I'll be there in ten minutes" (for example). The last step requires you to actually hit send on your phone, but it works pretty well for me.
Also it seems like every keyboard and SMS app have dictation built in now, so just hitting the microphone on any of those is pretty easy if I don't have Vlingo open.
I'd like to rear-end her.

Indeed not safe. Dumb idiots,Nail em up I say! Nail some sense into them!
Bullshit! She was doing it because she's a moron. I'd bet she regularly texts while driving.
She's got dumb thin upper-lip syndrome, let's people know how retarded the person is. Oh the irony, hey i could catch aids if i fuck this $20 hooker. Might get lucky, might die. We all take risks.
What little hotness she had drained out when I hit the fact she was a dirty Mormon.
Aside from that, this is far from an isolated incident. No matter what law you pass, teenagers are all under the delusion that they will live forever. I make a habit of cruising through a part of the county I live in on my way home from my shift specifically looking for texting high school girls on their way to school. I almost always catch one, and I have no mercy. $200 first offense.
Do they loose points as well?
Thank god for MH.
Bet they piss and moan the whole time.
