    Stupid People Tricks

    I think they are here.

    They should do more about it though! It's awful that you see phone's in a lot of driver's hands. Most of them claim they have to for work, but I don't think that should be an excuse! Their jobs should be required to provide hands free phones, if that is the case.

    How Do You Deal With People Who Call You When They're Driving?

    I don't use cell phones when I'm driving but what stresses me is when people call from their cell phone when they are driving. Usually they're on the motorway because they see that as wasted time and they don't think they need to concentrate so much. Sometimes it's friends but...
