Re: cell phones and driving.
I can send and receive txt messages from the built in system in 2 of my cars. It is MUCH safer than touching the phone. You can only choose preset outgoing messages, and you do it all via voice if moving, and it reads the txts out to you. If stopped, you can read them on the screen and touch your reply. I don't have near as much problem with people talking on the phone, but the txting/typing/staring at it infuriates me. I am that guy that screams at people in traffic "PUT YOUR DAMN PHONE DOWN AND DRIVE". I will say it is by far the young girls that do it the most. I see it in rush hour traffic every day. What I can't fathom is how they have that much to say, and that there is actually someone else that wants to hear/read it. I can even answer phone calls (and place them, but I never do) from the Retrosound in my El Camino. The tech is there so that nobody ever has to touch the damned things while driving a car.
