basically the girl said "driving and facebooking is not safe" and then died a couple seconds later. i almost don't even feel bad because she was texting like crazy "to stay awake" when she could have turned up the radio to ridiculous levels or made it freezing cold in the car, she was basically asking for it.

I love how the parents' first move is to ban texting and driving, as if it's the state's fault and not the idiocy of their departed offspring.

Or you know, pull over and take a nap? Sleep deprivation has a huge effect on driver ability and most people (at least here in nz) dgaf and drive like morons. I feel bad for her parents (not sure if because they lost their child or because they had to put up with it but one of those anyway).

80 mph is also waaay over the speed limit.

Oh man, I'm agreeing with zoot... But it's true, I have no sympathy for people this stupid.

Agreed.

Though, I sometimes feel guilty of driving distracted when I change songs on my iPhone while driving. I don't text though, and if I get a phone call it transfers to the car's stereo so it's hands-free. Not that anyone ever calls me though, outside of work-related stuff.

*cries*

Don't outlaw it. It weeds out dumbasses who are stupid enough to text while driving

When they outlawed texting while driving in Chicago, phone related accidents increased since people tried to text while hiding their phones. So instead of holding their phone up to see the road while they typed they'd be looking at their crotch while driving and typing.

The first one is horribly distracting and the second will slow your motor ability. Neither are inherently good ways to stay awake.

Cruel, but I agree to some extent. The amount of pain these people inflict on their families is absolutely shameless, all because they had to text. I mean, seriously.

You think they're going to educate their daughter on safe driving now?

You don't, neither do other people on the opposing lane. Why is texting whilst on the road so horribly important?

Plenty of other safer ways to communicate on the road.

I do.

You put EVERYONE around you at risk. They did nothing wrong and don't deserve to die because you couldn't wait to text your friend "lol". Idiots like you don't deserve to drive and own a phone at the same time.

But it puts the innocent at risk of dying. They didn't do anything.

What a shame. She forgot to be piss drunk while yelling out the window "DO NOT DRINK AND DRIVE".

She failed so hard when she crashed. Also I thought texting while driving was banned already. o.o

EDIT: if you're at a red light and it just turned out red. Quick 1 sentence text, whatever, but pay the hell attention to the light and drop the phone the moment it goes green. Any other time and even thinking about touching that phone is a horrible idea.

Ehh, it said she was on highway, so that's not too bad.

It's stupid and I suppose it's her own fault, but she doesn't deserve to die over it. No one does.

Can't fix stupid.

But we can definitely enforce laws to kill them off.

80 is probably the fastest anyone should really be going on the highway even when they're giving their undivided attention.

Not to mention it's already over the limit in most areas.

Also, she was either going 10 or 5 over. Maximum speed limit in Idaho is 75mph so 70mph or 75mph SL on the highway.

It's cruel yeah but it's all well and good for her to risk her own life, but she's risking the lives of everyone else too. It's lucky she hit the back of a truck instead of taking another person down with her.

Funny thing is that she would've had a way better chance of surviving if she was piss drunk instead of texting
