I just followed the same car for three miles down Mentor Ave. and the guy looked up at the street 4 times.  Yep, I said only four times.  He was GPSing or texting or looking at a map or reading a Kindle like the bus driver I heard about on the news.  I didn't dare pass him even though he was going 10 miles under the speed limit because he never looked to see if he was in his lane.  Not one time.  Sometimes he was and sometimes he wasn't.  Good thing that street is pretty straight as an arrow.
When he did look up it was to see if there was a car in front of him that had stopped.  Fortunately, there wasn't.
I wanted to jump out of my car and say  DRIVE YOUR CAR, YOU LUNATIC!!!   Of course, I didn't.  As soon as my right hand turn lane showed up I just heaved a sigh of relief that he hadn't hit the curb, me, another car or whatever.
You know they had  a very serious campaign about Don't Drink and Drive.  I think we need a new one--Keep Your Eyes on the Road!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
