During the recent snow falls, I have noticed drivers talking on their cell phone while driving. This is very dangerous to do. If you hit a patch of icy pavement, you could spin out and crash. You need to concentrate on driving, not talking on your phone. What about a child who suddenly darts into the road? Would you be able to stop in time without hitting them? Common sense is the most important thing to have in bad weather. If you think that the road is unsafe to drive on, please slow down and use both hands on your steering wheel to control your car. It is possible to approach an intersection and not be able to stop for a red light or stop sign. Would you be the one that hits an oncoming car that had the right-of-way and cause injuries in an accident. Please avoid using your cell phone while driving. The life you save may be your own. Please support the Bay View community.
