    Now, now..I was recently “bumped” while waiting at a red light. The driver of the flashy new SUV that hit me was a middle aged professional type who was yakking on his cell phone, not paying attention to his driving. Neither I nor my 13 year old hoopty were damaged, and his Lincoln was just fine, too, but I did manage to give him some grandmotherly advice..”Hang up and drive, dammit!”

    Interesting story…..”was driving a 2006 Buick Lucerne on Kansas Highway 14, two miles East of Brookville”….14 highway is a North/South road and Brookville is 20 miles East of 14. Hmmmm.

    People who allow their phones and devices to divide their attention from the road should be slapped in the back of the head, and their license suspended for 30 days the first time it occurs, for 60 days the 2nd time, for 90 days the 3rd time, for a year the 4th time, and for life if it happens a 5th time.
