There's a great deal of debate these days over making cell phone use while driving illegal. Although most of us have become accustomed to chatting while we drive it's become very clear that one second's inattention can have disastrous results.
And it's not just the actual speaking on the phone that's the culprit. It's that one's attention goes to the subject of the conversation and away from what's happening on the road, even after the call is disconnected.
So far I've avoided hurting myself or others through that kind of inattention and with all the media attention this subject gets I'm even more watchful about driving when I'm driving and doing nothing else.
In thinking of all my knitting friends here on the forum I'd urge you to save the wonderful experience of knitting for when you're not in what's been called one of the most dangerous places on earth - the highway!
Bless you all and have a wonderful, safe holiday season!
