    Another method of distracted driving

    I saw a woman driving down I-380S in CR today while knitting.

    Re: Another method of distracted driving

    I once witnessed a guy reading the newspaper while driving. Oh yeah, and it was a cop.

    That's the Amish version of texting while driving. It's a big problem in their communities.

    I think this is where I say pictures or it didn't happen. And then we also can complain about some idiot taking pictures while they're driving.

    Right around 7:50 or so there was a huge slowdown just north of downtown 380 southbound. I'm going to blame it on her.

    Why so judgmental? Maybe she was knitting a steering wheel cozy.
