smart phone, stupid drivers

Toronto, 2017.10.11

As I rode past a line of slow-moving cars today, I counted 8 drivers using their phone (out of 46 cars). The laws aren't working. We seem to be stuck with this sickness: people in control of tonnes of steel lost in distraction.

It's a pity the car manufacturers don't use the electrified steel cages they sell as Faraday cages to prevent cell use when the car is moving.

(In which I leave the final word to someone else.)

Illusions commend themselves to us because they save us pain and allow us to enjoy pleasure instead. We must therefore accept it without complaint when they sometimes collide with a bit of reality against which they are dashed to pieces.
