Subject: RE: BS: Phone related traffic deaths
I was wandering about in Cheltenham (had to be here) and noticed a woman driving (single handed) looking at her lap, happytapping. And it was BM Bloody W. And it was a Chelsea Tractor.

Didn't hear a bang in the distance so ........... lucky this time.

Given that I walk a lot of roads that have no footpath, looking for Bench Marks & my attention to detail is wound up to 11. For this very reason.
I invariably stand on what verge is available looking at them as they pass, and less then 1/2 acknowledge my effort to not slow them down. Yea, Yea it is in my interests to play safe because of speeds these days, and there is not enough time to look behind to see if cars need to pass.
