Dont drive while looking at your laptop

January 2006

Coincidences are fun. Driving into work this morning there was a story on NPR talking about the recent trend toward adding full fledged multimedia systems to cars. Separate video for everyone, DVD players, game systems, you name it. Part of the discussion talking about a law in Connecticut where cops can ticket you for anything that's a distraction while driving. The examples given were of talking on a cell phone, shaving, or yelling at the kids in the back. About ten seconds after the story was over I sheriff passed me going the other way. The funny thing was he was working on the little laptop they have mounted in the passenger seat more than he was watching the road. (Note: This was actually from yesterday morning, but I didn't post it till today.)
