When are people going to learn to STAY OFF THE PHONE WHILE DRIVING!!! If you want to kill yourself, that's your business but, Innocent people do not deserve to have their lives at risk for your inconsiderate stupidity! PUT YOUR CELL PHONE IN THE BACK SEAT AND YOU WON'T BE DISTRACTED OR TEMPTED TO USE IT DUMMIES!!! CONCENTRATE ON THE ROAD NOT THE PHONE!!!
