That's it! I've had it.
There is no way other than this to say it:
Talking on cell phones while driving is stupid and dangerous.
We have been hit twice in six months by people who were not paying attention while driving - aka - talking on the phone. This is completely unacceptable.
These people are not being punished for operating a machine that weighs over a ton doing anywhere upwards of 100 kmh and talking on a phone. Think about how stupid that is.
Particularly since they are doing it on a road that is crammed with a whole lot of other stupid people doing the same thing.
Cell phone use in cars has now been prohibited in two provinces - Quebec and NFLD. I hope that we can get British Columbia to follow suit before too many more people are hurt or killed.
I was hurt, lost a position at my workplace, have suffered both mental and physical trauma, have injuries that may never fully heal and undergone huge expense. Why? So someone could phone someone else and say, " Hi, What are you doin'?"
PLEASE, PUT DOWN YOUR STUPID PHONE AND JUST PAY ATTENTION TO YOUR DRIVING!
