I think it should be possible to use the phone's signals to give a fairly precise location within the car. So then you just have to worry about the real addicts who convert their cars to right-hand drive.

When you figure that out, let me know.

Or maybe people can put on their big girl and boy pants and try being responsible members of society for a change. My phone dings in the car and I check it at the next redlight or when I get to my destination...no fancy software....no big brother over policing my life...no satellite signals...just me, motivated by not wanting to crash and ruin my day.

Plus there is no time to text when you're busy dodging potholes...I think I've seen better roads in war zone pictures than the roads around me; they've taken a beating this winter and have not rolled with the punches well.

I don't know what it's like in Texas. But on Internet, responsibility has new-found respectability due to the Youtube videos of Jordan B. Peterson.

Clean your room or you'll be sorry later.

He’s just another psych with an angle to grind. No matter how ridiculous he makes the willfully stupid appear.
