State of the Art – Your Phone Is Locked, Just Drive – NYTimes.com.

I must admit that I am just as guilty as the next mobile/smart phone user. I have a habit of texting and taking pictures with my crackberry while I am in the car driving down the road. Most of the time I am just reading incoming e-mails because it is a work crackberry and someone is always hollering for my assistance with a technology problem. Nevertheless I do need to get better with NOT doing this because I know that I am increasing my chances of having a smash em up bang bang incident. Several months ago while I was in Mt Pleasant I almost took out a car parts delivery driver who was making a right turn into an auto part store. One moment I was looking at him making a right turn and thought, oh he is turning I have a few seconds to look at my crackberry. I looked up and had one millisecond to swerve to the right and just miss the back end of this small pickup truck who was slowly turning into the driveway. I have no idea what happened but I barely missed him. That sort of got my attention so when I am in heavy traffic I absolutely do not pay attention to my crackberry.
