Thank goodness they are okay! I am sure hubby was very upset. I would have been so scared. I don't know why people don't pay attention when they are driving!

First I want to say I am glad everyone is okay LS!!

Second - I was driving to the mall yesterday and witnessed a rear ender. The guy was stopped at the red light and the guy that hit him (18 years old) didn't break and ran right into him. I pulled over to be the witness and you wanna know what the 18 year old said "I didn't see you, I look up from texting every 6 seconds to make sure nothing like this ever happens, you came out of no where" uhm excuse me? yep... I agree... STOP TEXTING AND DRIVING OR TALKING AND DRIVING

I agree Denise, it's only common sense...and the law where I live...

quote...

“Hands-free” only
Any use of a hand-held cell phone that does not have a “hands-free” function is now prohibited while driving. Motorists were granted a three-month grace period, during which they only received a warning when arrested for this type of offence, but since July 1, 2008 they have to pay a fine of $115 (including court costs) and have three demerit points added to their driving record.

The Société de l'assurance automobile du Québec also specifies that if you absolutely must use your phone, you must do so from a safe location; i.e., a parking lot, a service area, or on the side of the road as long as the speed limit is 70 km/h or less.

Better yet: don’t use the phone at all
CAA-Quebec reminds the public that the true danger is that while driving, the mere fact of having a phone conversation is a source of distraction. It therefore urges motorists to heed the following advice:

You are better off not talking on the phone at all while driving, “hands-free” or not.
When you’re on the road, turn off your handset so that any incoming calls are forwarded to your voice mail. Or, if you have a passenger, let that person make or receive calls.

Oh LS, it is the law here as well... I think most if not all of Canada has these laws. It in no way shape or form means they follow them though. The consequences that our law enforcement provides, unfortunately is not strict enough in my opinion. The driver of the car - got a ticket for I believe 115 (first offence) and that is all... MAYBE this is the first time he has been caught but what will it take next time? To a mother walking her child in a stroller? Or a child that darts out in front of traffic? Or anyone for that matter? Because if he keeps doing the "6 second rule) it WILL happen. It only takes 1 second

OMG...I'm so glad that he and the dogs are ok!!!

I would be mad too, with my temper I would be trying to throw a rock at his car and get his car tag number to call the police and say that the guy was trying to murder me!!!

Thank you LS. It was a terrible thing. I hope no one I know ever has to go through such a thing.
I am so glad this story has a good ending. A scare like that will give you a shake for some time but thank goodness no one was seriously harmed.
