Cell phones aren't the only driving danger

Letter to the editor

Posted: Friday, October 24, 2003

In

regards to Ms. Thurston's letter on tracking people who have been in accidents to see if they were using their cell phones: How about tracking to see if they were busy applying makeup? How about lighting a cigarette? Drinking coffee? Changing the radio station? Eating? There are many distractions drivers have and using a cell phone is just the newest one. We all need to be more responsible when driving and pay more attention to our surroundings. Don't act like you're the only one on the road and don't act like you own the road. We need to be more courteous when driving. It's amazing what difference using your common sense can make. Try it.
