I guess the Danville Police will begin a new awareness as I see folks talking on their cell phones all the time and the police do nothing even when it's taking place right next to them. The police and our drivers don't even know that when it's raining it's the law that you have your headlights on. The revenue we could acquire if our police department just enforced the laws on the books would be startling.

Well this is one of the worst juxtapositions of unrelated stats I've seen in a while:
"According to the department's 2011 annual report, there were 223 traffic collisions last year. According to Distraction.gov, more than 196 billion text messages were sent in June 2011, up nearly 50 percent from June 2009."
Typical media FUD. That said- don't text and drive geniuses, or Darwin will get you.

Mike- thanks for writing what I was thinking! Was that a failed attempt to show causality?
