    Blackberry while driving...

    Advertisement



    So I was on the QEW last night and this guy passes me in a 3 series Bimmer. Guess what he's holding up against the steering wheel while steering?

    Yes... his Blackberry and he's feverishly typing away on it while cruising at 120+KM/h.

    I was at a loss for words.

    you have options

    1. Type on BB when she is not around

    or do what I do

    2. Toss her the BB and ask her to take notes/ prep email while I talk aloud. LOL

    Re: Blackberry while driving...

    My husband is always asking me to call or message people for him when he is driving with me in the car. Sometimes I do it. Often I add extra tid bits to the message

    I get paid to do it. At the end of the work day, T-Mobile wants a re-cap. So I usually type it on the way home... Heh heh heh....

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    I would almost rather have drivers stoned on weed while driving than be on a BB or mobile.

    I think the pot-head is slightly more attentive!!!

    But wait!!

    When I lived in Ontario, I would drive the 4xx's and the QEW well in excess of 120. I think my average was 140.

    And the last time I drove a rental (Ford Mustang GT) from Kingston to YYZ, I was averaging 150 in a pack of cars driving an appropriate limit.

    No time for anything but steering at that speed!

    You're right but I don't have any other choice than writing on my BB when she's not around 'cause she hate it that's not even possible.

    Maybe I pass too much time on my BB.... Nah that's all in my head

    I actually drive safer when I am talking on my BB than when I am not.

    Re: Blackberry while driving...

    i hate to admit it, but i definitely use my BB while driving. i'm such a hypocrite! i get pissed at other people when they use their cell phones while driving. i even get upset with my boyfriend for using his sidekick while driving...yet i am also an offender! maybe i just feel that i can handle doing two things at once, as opposed to other people.

    ...or maybe i am just better than everyone else because i have a BB? hahahah! i'm allowed to do these things...i work with superior technology...or something...hmmmm.....

    ok now i'm just rambling
