Four car pile-up caused by idiot talking on phone while driving

I just got this from the June 21 edition of The Royal Gazzette. It is just another example of someone too focused on the conversation on their cell phone. It is good to see that there is someone willing to do something about it.

Opposition senator Kenny Bascome forcefully repeated his tireless call yesterday for Government to ban hand-held cell phones while driving after yesterday’s four-car pile-up near Shelley Bay.The accident, which took place near the Bethel AME Church yesterday, reportedly resulted in minor injuries to one driver and one man arrested on suspicion of impaired driving. Speaking during the Motion to Adjourn in the Senate yesterday evening, Sen. Bascome said an eyewitnesses who called in to the radio talk shows yesterday claimed the man had been speaking on a cell phone at the time. Sen. Bascome said the size of Bermuda’s winding roads and the amount of traffic congestion in the country made it incomparable to other jurisdictions. Banning cell phones, he added, would be a pro-active step towards greater safety on the roads.
