Was involved In a head on collision in 2004 that destroyed my mint condition low mileage 86 TA...Was hit by a teenaged girl who was blabbing on her phone and doing everything but driving...When she crossed the centerline in her Sunbird and hit us at 55 MPH....Happened so fast that I never saw it coming...Until it Was too late..Was EXTREMELY lucky that everyone concerned was basically able to walk away....Am still pissed about it..Personally I pretty much hate laws and regulations..but think that you should loose you drivers license If you get caught playing with your phone while driving..Just like a DWI......
