Idiots Among Us - Texting While Driving

Anyone who drives as much as I do, knows some simple truths about Charlotte drivers.

First: Mini Vans are the scourge of the city, known for going 10 miles an hour below the posted speed limit, making right turns with the left blinker flashing away, sudden stops and other erratic driving.

Second: Audi A6 and A8 are pretty good cars to follow if you're in a hurry on 485.

Except when the driver is a 50 something blonde driving her Audi A6 on 485 in the left lane going only 60 miles an hour and texting.

Not only is she texting but she's put on her reading glasses to do it.
I don't care if you text and drive just don't do it on 485 in the left hand lane and force car after car to pass you on the right because you are only going 60 mph.

I am not kidding the line behind her was 20 cars.

Thankfully she took her happy little butt off 485 at Providence Road

And how many cars did you hold up taking that picture? That’s just as bad as texting and driving.

Hey 4:24 seriously? You think Cedar taking a photo is going to hold up traffic and that's just as bad as texting and driving? Look at her, she has reading glasses on and is totally focused on her phone and not driving.

Good call there 4:24 I got her via my Go-Pro mounted on the side window. Slowed down just enough to make a slow pass. GoPro video is wonderful for just that reason.
