https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/av/uk-scotland-45680170/driver-smashes-into-car-as-he-checks-his-phone "Dashcam and cabin footage shows a driver checking his phone as he caused a fatal crash on the A75. David Shields has been jailed for five years for causing the death of Yvonne Blackman in Dumfries." Do watch the video to see how easily it happened. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-45653029 "The death of a girl hit by a tablet computer in a car accident has raised concerns about the safety of using such devices in moving vehicles. The three-year-old was killed after her mother's car collided with the back of a school bus in Spain on Monday. Local reports indicate the girl was strapped into an Isofix-anchored child seat but the impact caused the tablet to fly into her face." Sadly the BBC report didn't describe whether the vehicle the child was in was an SUV, driven by the typical SUV driver who we can all envisage being easily capable to crash into the back of a bus and hopefully get prosecuted for being a blight on humanity, but let's not go there, in case it offends the other idiots whose sole dignity in their otherwise existence can't be realised unless the rest of us can become aware of their existence by the menace they are able to cause. Back to the unfortunate death of this child, What on earth is going on? When I was a kid, when my daughter was a kid, our journeys were punctuated by "Oh look there's some moo cows or baa lambs!" And "Do you remember I said we'd be going past Stonehenge? Well it's coming up up soon on the right, so look out for it." I can understand why anyone so stupid as to drive into the back of a bus, would also be stupid enough to be incapable of reasoning what might happen in a crash situation with anything loose in a vehicle, but for goodness sake, what's going on when parents are teaching their kids to be screen zombies from such early ages rather then engaging them with the world around them that they will inevitably have to know about? But maybe the driver in this instance was also more intent in finding out why the phone beeped to alert the driver that someone had replied to a twitter or Facebook comment. Who knows, since this site encourages us to share posts on here on Twitter and Facebook, it might have been you who caused these deaths? The world has gradually been going madder all my life, but we're hurtling into insanity at breakneck speed now. What's it all about?
