Texting???

Everytime I am behind someone at a stop light, I can see they are on the phone or texting and sit there long after the light turns green. Then they get angry if someone toots their horn at them. We have seen people on I-20 in the left lane talking or texting and going 10 miles under the speed limit.

So I wonder what this person was distracted by. I also wonder if it is appropriate to pull over and call 911 to report these offenders, especially on I-20.

I travel this road almost daily and get frustrated at the drivers who drive anywhere from 10 to 20 miles under the speed limit with traffic backed up because they are doing something other than paying attention.

Yes, you may save a life, but from what I see daily you will be on the side of the road a lot. Too many idiots are driving today as if they are the only ones on the road

If you pull over every time you see a person driving badly or texting in the CSRA you'll never get anywhere. The whole area is full of bad drivers who shouldn't be on the road and just have to text.
