Agreed, my feelings also, seat belts and airbags are proven lifesavers.

I believe " Distracted Driver " is now the leading cause of crash's.

Navigation systems, phone calls, texting, applying makeup, eating, drinking, tuning radio, reading.

You are so right. People need to pay attention and just 'DRIVE'!!!
Everyone would benefit and the roads much safer, for all of us out there....

Getting a driver's license is a joke. Most driver's have never received any professional training. There is no continuing education. Driving is not taken seriously. Driver's are too easily distracted. I could go on.

If driver's were to go through what pilot's must endure to earn and keep a flying license, there would be far fewer driver's on the road but with better instruction and more knowledge.

One thing that is obviously clear, in every picture that I have seen of an RV that has been off the road and tipped over, they look very fragile. Pieces and parts are strewn every where! Should make sure everyone pays strict attention to their driving.

One thing we decided was to store our MH outside of Los Angeles to avoid two areas where there are a lot of accidents. It was stressful with so many cars cutting in front of you and the Grapevine grade was a conquest also.

We also save on gas, and wear and tear on the RV. Much less stressful trips.

Lived in SoCal for several years. Most inconsiderate drivers in the country are in SoCal.

No you would just have more drivers without a license.

Yup, my son an ex NYC cop, says that about half his traffic stops, 10 years ago when on the beat, were to suspended, revolked or un-licensed drivers. I guess he was profiling.
