I can believe it. I've seen people drive into a ditch just because they were playing with the radio in the pre-mp3-player days.
I'll bet that even in the most advanced civilization, there's some doofus who's driving his land-speeder into a tree *right now* because he was trying to turn off the station playing Lady Gaga for the 7th time in an hour. (They're so advanced they can pick up those signals now, despite the speed of light)
We could try a bunch of laws that just add tons of fines to things that are already illegal, but they probably wouldn't _prevent_ such accidents. Most people that get in an accident because of their iPod aren't going to be so apt to repeat their behavior even without a huge fine on top of their car repair costs and the hours of removing blood from the undercarriage.
This is why I say we need cars that drive themselves *right now*. Cars that drive themselves, and also transform into fighting robots.
What part of "Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn" don't you understand?
I still say, survival of the fittest!
Changing your Ipod is the same as Textiing while you drive. Some people should just not do it!
They are the same same as people who think they can drive after drinking!
Take away that Seatbelt law! That way the people who are smoking, drinking and texting while trying to change the Ipod get to go through the window when they hit that tree! Instead of surving to do it again and possibly hit someone doing it right?!
Then again, maybe the British wouldnt be blameing the MP3 players...If they just drove on the right side of the road:P
>> I still say, survival of the fittest!
The problem is... the same people Darwin is weeding out are crashing their car into my family (effectively getting a 3:1 kill ratio against improvement in the genepool).
