	Or once you slam into the rear end of a 20-year-old pick-up truck that
just happens to have a big ole' rusty steel tube for a bumper and had to
stop quickly while you were looking down at your cell phone's face pad
trying to dial an 'important' number...of course causing your baby's
face to become very dirty, and worse...smashed in, gushing fluids and
unable to see due to broken lenses!
	In case you didn't figure it out, it happened to me and I now KNOW it
IS dangerous to drive and use cell phones simultaneously. I was
traveling and using my phone excessively without caring before that
incident...and though I cannot say I don't do it anymore, I DO do it far
less frequently and much more carefully now!
	Hope this helps someone....
