Did You Know?
Really Distracted Driving
I've seen a lot of crazy things people do while driving. You know the typical stuff like talking on the phone, donning makeup, reading, drinking, eating, texting, etc. The other afternoon I was riding home from the Garfield Park Conservatory and a van pulls up beside me — not a mini-van, an old-school tricked up van with airbrushed art on the side. I look to my left through the passenger window and the driver has got a skilsaw out in his right hand and he's operating it while driving. I'm a bit stunned, but I get my wits to say Excuse me but could you focus on one thing at a time, and I'd prefer it to be driving. He simply laughs it off, but his passenger punched him in the arm and said, I told you! Wish I had a camera at the time.
