    Traffic Rant Gonna get them cell phone drivers!!!

    Guy in I think FL actually rigged up a jammer and was using it on his commute for a while. Til the FCC got his azz. I think it was an 80K fine

    Traffic Rant Gonna get them cell phone drivers!!!

    You think we haven't fixed drunk driving, and thats true to a point. We haven't fixed AIDs or cancer either. Some things you cant fix, all you can do is improve, and the fact that you cant eradicate them shouldn't mean you don't try to reduce them. What the below data doesn't do is speak to the...

    And thats what training does. Allows you to remain task focused on priorities while shedding less important tasks. Aviate/Navigate/Communicate. Same thing with passengers, shut them out when more attention is required for the road. I'm with Vrai, make individuals responsible for their actions.

    Traffic Rant Gonna get them cell phone drivers!!!

    The studies I've seen were pretty skewed regarding handsfree vs handheld. No discrimination was allowed, you were required to respond to a message or spoken words within a certain time or the data was tossed. I dont know about anyone else, but I start any call with "I'm driving, so expect me to...

    My car allows hands-free calls and also can read my texts to me and reply via speech to text. So no, don't restrict me.

    What with those really punitive fines of $83, $140 and topping out at a whopping $160 bucks, I predict great success at "changing driver behavior". Texting is a point on your licence, but I"m not sure they really enforce that, since proving it would require searching someones cell phone. Sad...

    Crime "Up to 15 year" Wanna bet?

    So, whats the bet here? Me, less than 5 sentenced with time served, out on parole in less than 3. What saith the crowd? https://smnewsnet.com/archives/445600/update-ridge-man-pleads-guilty-in-armed-robbery-of-woman-at-atm-in-ridge/

    Traffic Rant Traffic Rant of the Day (can we get a sticky?)

    Some folks have issues with the take home car program. Not me, I think it's a wise use of resources. Whatever little additional mileage they rack up is more than compensated for by the care they give a car that "belongs" to them. And the additional deterrent factor that having that car out in...

    About those "green" electric cars....

    On a related note, Tesla had an Investor Autonomy Day to show off where they are on the route to Full Self Driving (FSD) which feeds into The Tesla Network, where you can turn your car loose to go make some money as an autonomous taxi til you need it. Some of the neural network stats are...

    "Navy's Last Active Duty P-3C Orion Squadron Is On Its Final Deployment"

    Two left, all the active ones done by the end of the year, really. Reserves sticking around, and some "cats and dogs, but the ol' girl is waving goodbye. The monitor out in the lobby has a saying that flashes up, "A Navy, when built, is worth far more than it cost" The Navy spent well on the...

    About those "green" electric cars....

    No need, I"ve seen it. Yeah, I want to wait a while on calling that one "spontaneous". China has not been above smearing a foreign maker to gain some advantage. There was one they did one I think BMW or Mercedes a few years back where some guy claimed his luxury car tried to kill him. Ah, look...

    Traffic Rant Friken plates/bowls and forks? REALLY?

    See this from time to time and I'm always amazed. Who thinks that spooning/forking food into your face while piloting 4,000lbs of metal down the road is a Good Idea?
