Re: Reading a Book-Driving a Car

my company recently installed 2 way cameras in our delivery vehicles...one focuses on the driver, the other on the road in front of the vehicle.

i'd like to have this in my personal vehicle. the camera records 14 sec before and 6 seconds after a collision. those no fault and "wrongly" faulted situations could be eliminated!

Re: Reading a Book-Driving a Car

I guess a person taking a picture while driving a car can't really criticise a person reading a book while driving a car.

I don't even have to look to point a camera to the left.

I helped write a law in Arkansas that bans text messaging and driving. It's called Paul's Law. I hope you don't do that while you drive too.

I have a brand new LG TracFone. It has all sorts of goodies. It does what I got it for, to check home. I have no clue how, nor inclination to text.
