I Hate When People Talk On Their Cell Phone and Drive

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 255 People

    Got Bluetooth?

    I am constantly wracking my mind as to why people who know they are constantly going to be using their cell phones, especially when driving, literally refuse to use a bluetooth/type of hand-free head-set!  I feel like these people feel they're so freaking important that they...

    Cell Drivers

    I was standing next to a cop and she had received a phone call.  The caller was driving and on her/his cell phone at the time.  She asked her/him, if they were on their cell and the person must've replied with a yes.  The officer said; aren't you aware you are not allowed...

    A Hero.

    I was stuck intraffic on I-80 a while ago.  The traffic on the other side was very heavy but moving quickly.  All of a sudden, some idiot on his cell phone (I was in the fast lane and could clearly see him talking on it) cut across 3 lanes of traffic cutting off a big...

    Seriously.

    It's illegal where I live yet you still have those douchebags chatting away while going 95 mph down the highway, forgetting to use their signals every time they get into the opposite lane. ********. I know it sounds bad... but sometimes I wish they would get into a car accident...

    Anyone Else Still Using Turn Signals?

    I have to drive about 80 miles a day on the highway. I see lots of other cars and I'm pretty sure I'm the only one bothering to still use turn signals when I switch lanes. I'm convinced it started when people started incessantly talking on their phones while they drive. I often...

    You Will Too

    When someone you love gets killed or hurt by someone texting or talking, you will change how you feel about it. But it won't happen to or because of you right? Okay, good. Phew!. Is it really that important? What if your battery on your phone was dead? Would it be...

    T-bone At 50 Mph

    I was driving down a 35 mph road, approaching an intersection with a 45 mph road. I had a green light. As I entered the intersection, I noticed a woman heading towards me, talking on her cell phone, at full speed. Her conversation was apparently so interesting, that she didn't...
