According to a report by Cambridge Mobile Telematics, which offers an app to motorists to track their road habits, 50 percent of New York drivers speed while on their cell phones.
I find this stat sad, troubling and dangerous.
The other day, my wife Eva was driving us in Glen Oaks Village when a car in front of us all of a sudden changed lanes without signaling, all while on her cell phone.
She had two kids and a dog in her car. Was this phone call so important that she was willing to risk everyone's life?
When my cell phone rings and I'm driving, I find a spot where I can pull over and stop, and than respond to that call. I wish more people would do the same.
