7/29    Is it really true that we subsidize auto driving to the tune of
        $5k/yr? Shit I could probably hire a private driver for less...
        \_ You might have missed the point.  Hiring a chauffeur to drive your
           private vehicle won't change the amount of gasoline your private
           vehicle use or the amount of real estate it uses on freeways and

Motoramic - Tue, Nov 20, 2012 2:00 PM EST Distracted drivers existed well before the advent of cellphones, and will likely exist long after such devices are shrunk to the size of a thumbnail and implanted under our skins at birth. In the meantime, many drivers will try to split their attention to the road with their work -- and one of the worst such offenders was caught hauling not just a phone or laptop, but an entire mobile office. 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. American police are finding, writing a ticket for distracted driving requires a tough level of proof. The German authorities didn't cite the Mondeo driver for any violations, because they didn't see him playing Michael Scott behind the wheel. I hope he's not one of those readers who needs to print out his emails to read them. Chris 40 minutes ago /sigh a "mobile home" is a home with axles, and is parked in a lot on top of stilts. a "manufactured home" is brought in on a trailer with no axles, and mostly put on a foundation. Manufactured homes CAN be put on stilts like mobile homes, but they shouldn't be due to their larger size by nature.

Masterskrain o 17 hours ago I had a guy in a BMW go by me on the I-10 Freeway outside of Ontario, Ca. with a set-up very similar some years ago, except that this idiot had his phone on his shoulder, and was steering with his knees while typing with one hand on the laptop sitting ON the steering wheel with the screen up, BLOCKING his view, and fulling paper out of a fax/printer spitting out paper in the front seat with his OTHER hand! Tommy o 16 hours ago I guess the author never heard of wardriving? That is when you drive down the street connecting to every open access point, and try and steal the IP Address, WiFi username and password using WEP Crack. What the hell is the difference you have kids talking and texting on phones as well as adults they are driving drunk. Eventually everybody is going to be killed off if this continues. I have started to carry a camera in my car in case of an accident. I will take care pictures of my vehicle as well as the one who hit me and that will be turned over to the insurance company as well as the police I will not tolerate this kind of behavior any longer. user o 5 hours ago Actually, if you have ever seen an insurance claims person's car? Police cars, Ambulances, RV's even have computers, rear back up cameras. When I lived in Germany a couple of years ago, The law stated all must be hands free devices with NO Exceptions.
