Cellphone usage while driving through red-lights is getting totally out of hand…and it seems to be growing. And why is this?
I think this goes deeper into the social rationalization of how the cellphone fits into the world’s culture…I say this because this problem with cellphone usage in traffic is not just isolated to the USA…it is now worldwide and people are getting killed everywhere in the world when someone talking on a cellphone runs a red-light.
What should be done about it…well, they have the cameras now at the intersections to photo red-light runners, put the camera so it could also see if they were on the phone… and then give that drivers cellphone number out to every mom or dad, husband or wife, brother or sister who has had a loved one killed by someone who ran a red light while on the cellphone so they can give them a call every once in a while during the night when they can’t sleep…that should get them off the phone while driving…
Other than that…I am listening….
