Maureen Dowd, a columnist who is always fun to read, has a good column today on the evils of driving while talking on a cell phone. I understand that there are exceptions and emergencies, but as someone who drives a two seater hatchback, I’m willing to go out on a limb and say that insofar as participating in activities which endanger others is not showing love to neighbor, it is a sin to drive while texting or dialing a cell phone (especially if you’re driving an SUV). Dowd argues that it is just as dangerous to use a hands-free phone. She may be right, but at the very least I believe that the driver with one hand on his ear and the other on the wheel is not considering me or my safety. His hitting me is not an “accident,” and he has sinned against me even if he swerves in time.
