  • Never a dull moment around here
  • This happened about 7:30 this morning, the lane to my house is just out of the picture. A young girl got out of this with minor injuries. Cop said she was probably texting. Good thing it wasn't raining, that ditch could easily have had 4 feet of water in it.

  • Here in Michigan, they made it illegal to be texting while driving. I see more people doing it now than before it was outlawed and most of them are females but not all are young teens and twenty-something's. The males are always young high school/college/millennial type punks. You doubt? Just look around you when you're at a stop light. Unfortunately not much law enforcement can do unless they actually see you doing it and pull you over. Lawmakers won't do anymore until statistics show an epidemic of traffic collisions and deaths attributed to texting on cell phone usage. One way to curb it now would be to completely outlaw all cell phone use while driving. Only for emergencies would be the better term. Before cells we got to our business meetings/work on time, we got our sales calls in at work , we got our daily gossip chats with our girlfriends done. High technology ain't always a good thing ya know. Thank Gene Roddenberry for cell phones by the way...
