That's a sad ending to a life! I use bluetooth to communicate to my phone and don't ever pick it up while driving. It announces who is calling and I can even set it to read incoming and respond to texts, but phone calls is about it for me. Texts and emails can wait. With AT&T they are a day old anyway

Investigators said Sanford was also posting selfies as she drove.
I must be getting too old..... I don't understand this selfie thing.
Texting and driving..... I see it constantly.

They recently passed a law up here (long over due) that it is against the law to be texting or talking on a hand held phone while driving. Yet, as I pass other drivers it looks like they never told anyone. Recently stopped at an intersection where I could see 4 other drivers and three of them were leaning on their cells. The fourth was probably waiting for a return text. And even when a story like that comes out, they don't connect it to their use.

Ya, that particular accident made our local news. While I must admit that I'd have a hard time sending a text sitting in a chair with no distractions, I can't imagine driving and trying to do anything that takes that much attention away from your driving. Yrs ago in fla I used to pass folks on the interstate applying make up, shaving and once - a lady reading a book @ 60mph
