Good! I saw this sedan in front of me swerving all around the other day, sure enough as I pass it was a lady with her phone in her hand texting away.

I just don't understand with the tech today (bluetooth, siri, etc) why people are still all over their phone when driving. Unless you run a flip phone there is no excuse for it these days.

MA has a new law on the books beginning in 10 days that addresses distracted driving/hands-free devices.

So that's why there was an increased presence on the road. Huh.
