My wife Meena said that a colleague of hers was rear ended the other day by a texting teen. Fortunately no one was hurt and according to Meena, a cop saw the person texting from his police cruiser, so this one should be sanctioned both by the courts and hopefully, a furious insurance company.
But what if Meena's colleague had been riding a bicycle or a pedestrian crossing the street? We have enough roadside memorials already.
