Worse than that is women (and it's always women) wearing cheap sunglasses which means they cannot see the different colours on traffic lights which means I'm risking my kids life crossing at a green light as they can't see the red one.
peachuk - I see, so you can drive, chat on the phone and murder a human all at the same time? Gives a different speel on mutitasking. Pity the poor person that gets choosen as the victim - or is that just random?
I see a lot more men talking on their phones than I do women, especially van drivers, but I do see a lot more woman texting while driving and although both are terrible and deserve the punishment when caught, I find texting behind the wheel worse. I have never done either when driving but I think texting would take up more of someones attention than talking on the phone making it more dangerous.
And I can honestly say that wearing sunglasses while driving has never impaired my ability to see when the light turns to red, I doubt the fact that mine are Ray Bans has anything to do with that.
I cant' say I have ever seen a woman driving whilst using a mobile, but obviously they DO, but see loads of men, often men driving big vans, and trying to manoeuvre round one of our many mini roundabouts! Scary!
I'm another one who sees mainly men on their mobiles whilst driving. I'm generally driving in town rather than country roads or motorways, so the main culprits I see are White Van Men, followed by young-students-in-clapped-out-hatchbacks followed by company-car-drivers-with-suit-jacket-on-a-hanger.
Perhaps it's dependant on where your driving as to what species of arse surrounds you?
My car is an automatic so I have no need for my left hand at all because I steer with one hand at all time therefore I need something to do with my left hand so holding a phone, or texting, or smoking, or picking my nose alleviates the boredom - that ok with you OP?
