  1. I’m sure no texting and driving was involved. By the way I’ve been having fun calling you people out for texting and driving!! Amazing how defense you turd buckets get!

    1. There really is no reason to be texting and driving. Pullover voice to text there are better options than what you’re doing. Pedestrians have to be careful too. Seem many a person walking with their head down.

      but seriously pedestrians you can be 100% right and in the crosswalk and still be dead be careful.
