  1. I AM SOOO TIRED OF TEXTING WHILE DRIVING. It seems to me more women than men still continue texting while driving, and I’ve been in near collisions or as a pedestrian, I’ve been in near hits by drivers texting while driving, with all near incidents being women drivers. I specially see women driving large SUVs and texting. I hope this woman serves jail time for this “accident” and not be left only with a small fine.
