Holy Distracted Driving!

Posted 21 November 2012 - 07:14 AM

Police in the Saarland region of Germany pulled over a Ford Mondeo wagon last week for going about 80 mph in a 62-mph zone. Inside they found a Staples shopping spree in the front seat: a laptop with docking station, a router and wi-fi antenna tied to a cellular data stick, a printer and a power inverter to keep it all humming. The driver had taken some precautions toward distracted driving by mounting his cellphone to the windshield for hands-free use.

I can barely even eat a sandwich and drive. O_O My head would explode if I had to pay attention to all that and driving.

In that case, a rocket launcher would be the correct response. If the driver is not in control of the vehicle, it needs to be taken off the road, immediately, by any means necessary, before it kills someone.
After all, there's a slim chance that the person killed might not deserve killing.

I won't lie. When my friend & I were 16/17, we wanted to buy a UPS truck & load that thing with tech equipment. Ah, to be young & retarded :)

Of course the equipment would have been in the back, not up front. lol

If I win the lottery I'll make sure to get you a cleaned out cargo container and you can totally do a server prepped for mobility - ala google - to it.
