Put down phone, focus on driving
The blog at Creative Loafing has a nice entry about cell phones and driving. I am very down with this. A few years ago I had two very close calls while driving and both involved some guy yacking away on his cell phone. I am guilty of picking mine up now and then when it rings but I get off ASAP and hang up immediately if I enter tricky traffic. Talking on a cell phone and driving is a lot like using your cell phone in the library, if you are going to have a half hour conversation do it somewhere else.
