  1. Probably on their phone! THIS is typical of an example of one thing wrong with our society: we allow absolutely bad people to drive motor vehicles. 10-50% of all drivers are NOT qualified to be driving. Can you imagine if they were taken off the road? Bussinesses would howl! It’s a higher value in our society to let KILLERS behind a wheel when, god-forbid, SALES are compromised. The woman who was hit has no right to complain because the driver was likely using his phone ($ to the phone service) and headed somewhere where they might buy something. Can’t stop that!
