sometimes I get the urge to take photos of every vehicle I see under the "control" of somebody with one hand on the wheel and one trying badly to conceal the mobile telephone pressed against their ear ..... but that would probably consume most of my day and keep from my work - which of course often involves paying special attention to the erratic behaviour of aforementioned vehicles love and peace, AD --- eoinmcnultygoodwin@xxxxxxxxx wrote: From: eoin mcnulty-goodwin <eoinmcnultygoodwin@xxxxxxxxx> To: Chip Atkins <pibbys@xxxxxxx> Cc: messengers@xxxxxxxxx Subject: Re: [messengers] Cell Phone Bans Don't Decrease Accidents, Study Says. Date: Sat, 30 Jan 2010 01:31:40 +0000 yeah right..... conducted by HIGHWAY Loss Data Institute, an 'insurance industry group'.... so basically accidents on highways involving insurance claims have not decreased since a ban on hand-held 'devices' (a.k.a. 'telephones') usage while propelling a tonne of mental around the place....... YEAH.....tell me knees, tell me elbows, tell me knuckles......actually while yer at it, tell me bollix................... actually, even if they did study accidents in urban centres of minor 'financial significance' to the insurance industry they'd find little difference (in dublin anyway).... in order for laws to have quantifiable effect, they kinda have to be enforced............. until you can manage that, there are people gettin hurt out there by inconsiderate ass-holes without the time to conentrate on what they're doing................. aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhh ;) peace out On Fri, Jan 29, 2010 at 5:35 PM, Chip Atkins <pibbys@xxxxxxx> wrote: > This can only mean one thing: Reduce Accidents?
