Comment: I wondered the same

(See in situ)


I wondered the same

I know of one guy who had a major seizure (no known cause - not allowed to drive any more) and another who I think seized and went into diabetic shock and luckily is still living in a wheelchair paralyzed from the waist down, and healthier than when he got into a wreck. Also texting or distracted driving. I can only speak from my experience I can NOT talk on the phone and drive at the same time, hands free or not. That doesn't make me want to legislate no talking on the phone, some do it quite well. I just know I can't do it.

But it seem seem kinda odd. A ten year old has the least likely death rate, but a 32 or 33 year old, still pretty good odds of avoiding death due to accident.

Also those same reasons you and I outlined may have been attributed to another party.

I never drive after ten, avoid driving after sunset or before sunrise as much as possible, and I'm extremely careful. I don't see well in twilight. Once it gets dark and headlights hit me I get blind for a second. A vehicle is a 3000-4000+ pound projectile. It's dangerous to drive and also maybe apparently more dangerous if you are a fair journalist?

Just my two cents...
