    Drivers often seem to take the opportunity at a stop light to text or check their phones sometimes missing the green signal and often slowing traffic. But I guess they can at least be honked at.

    The whole "smartphone accommodation" thing is getting out of control if you ask me.

    There are so many people with their hands practically glued to the damn piece of plastic.
    What's next, "slow lanes for texting while driving"? (Not gonna happen, I know)
