An enormous number of people use text messaging while they are driving. In California and a number of other states this is illegal. But that has not stopped the carnage on our freeways. At PFPFP.org we have a proposal that should solve the problem in short order.
A simple change to the law is all that is required. Make it legal to text while driving as long as the driver (also, presumably, the texter) is not wearing a seat belt. Ideally, airbags would be switched off, too, but that presents technical difficulties that us folks at pfpfp are not prepared to take on.
Prediction: within a few years the problem of drivers texting will take care of itself. And, as an added bonus, this will further our organization’s goals.
At pfpfp, we’re always watching for warning signs that should be ignored. While our title (we oppose this bumper sticker) is technically incorrect, it was the best we could do. Remember, if you text while driving you will increase the demand for this company’s products, boosting the economy.
The NTSB is trying to thwart evolution. The U.S. National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) has just proposed banning all cell phone use while driving. No talking, texting, e-mailing, surfing, or sexting. The Wall Street Journal put the story on their web front page. Not to be outdone, the New York Times followed suit.
People for a Population-Free Planet opposes these restrictions vehemently. After all, driving while doing anything with a cell phone is very stupid. And likely to involve the user in an accident. Those who believe evolution is no longer working should think about this for a few minutes.
To paraphrase a well-known bumper sticker, “They can have my cell phone when they pry it from my cold, dead fingers. Especially if I died in a car crash I caused.”
