Brad Bradshaw: Dumb multitasking

October 11, 2013 

Alas, again recently I was almost hit by someone staring at her smart phone while driving a car. This time it was a woman in a white Volkswagen heading south on Six Forks Road. She had to swerve into the center turn lane to prevent crushing my motorcycle (and me).

Amazing how a device called “smart” can render so many people stupid. Are we so confident in our abilities that we feel the need to multitask while propelling ourselves down a street in 4,000 pounds of steel?

Please put cell phones down before someone gets killed.
