Her life and the lives of others were in her hands.
She knew what she was doing
was illegal and dangerous.
Weaving from lane to lane,
in denial of her actions,
she felt she was still perfectly capable of driving.
As long as her phone was at her right ear, maybe no one would notice.
In Oregon we have a law that you can't use your cell phone while driving unless you use a hands-free device. I am amazed at the people who think they can get away without the hands-free by trying to hide their phone against their right ear....away from the more "exposed" traffic side. Who do they think they're fooling? Of course these are the same people who think as long as the phone is in their lap, they can text and drive, too. I say "STOP"! Put the phone down. Go to a store, any store, and buy a cheap hands-free for $25. Come on. Quit risking your life and the lives of others. Better yet, get secure enough with yourself that you don't need to be "connected" 24/7.
