Question: add to Watch List | reply
WHY DO so many people on cell phones disregard safety when driving, when walking across streets & parking lots. While backing up recently on a parking lot, several young people were walking through the lot so absorbed on their cells, they weren't watching for cars at all. Regarding driving, if your conversation is that important, why can't you pull over or stay parked in the parking lot before making that call?

I hate to see people texting or talking on their cell phones while they are driving. They are not only a danger to themself but they are a danger to you too. Why do we have to have constant communication with someone else? Years ago before cell phones people had to stop at a phone booth to call somebody now we have to talk to somebody every minute of the day.

Its just common ignorance. If you they don't watch where they are going its their own fault. I personally do not talk while driving and only text at red lights or stop signs with no one waiting behind me.
