    I witness everyday more women then men texting and talking on a cellphone. Both while driving and sitting at a red light. Light turns green and they there are still sitting and texting. Ask yourself why do cars just cross the double yellow lines. Yes it could of been a illness but most likely it was not paying attention. If you are caught texting it should be 3 points or more just like speeding. Put the “f”in phones down.

        My aunt was one of the people in this crash, police have not said either her or the other driver were texting and driving. You should really be more informed and considerate when making comments.

      Kim left behind a daughter, who one day may look at these articles and be hurt and confused by your comments. Melanie left behind a few children as well, they shouldn’t be confused by lies when they get older. Be considerate of the families involved. Your comment was unnecessary, no one was texting and driving.
