"Driver who killed motorcyclist was painting nails"

Not sure if this is the right place to post something like this, if it isn't then sry.

http://www.suntimes.com/news/metro/1...050509.article

This makes me sooo angry/sad to read. I know drivers can be careless sometimes, but PAINTING YOUR NAILS while driving? Absolutely irresponsible, and in this case it cost another woman her life. I hope the driver at least gets her license permanently suspended, as she has no right at all to be behind a wheel.

I guess it was more important for her to make sure her nails looked good. This stuff always makes me angry. There is always a time and a place for everything including painting your nails and it's not while you're driving.

What a !

How many of you guys/girls have been on the bike and seen people reading books, changing clothes, driving from the passenger seat, doin tha dirty, watching movies on the laptop next to them, etc. etc. I have seen all of these on I-10 and thats only in a 10 mile stretch. Whats crazy, is when you put your hands up like hey, what they are you doing? They act like your an a$$hole. lol. People are morons.

LOL ^^ (SuperDuke)

Truth!

I was rolling down Holcombe in the left lane last Friday and this dumbass in a mercedes talking on the phone comes across 3 lanes to cut me off to catch the light on Greenbriar. I rolled up to him and thru my helmet and his glass window I yell "WHAT THE F&#*!!! You almost hit me!". He rolled down the window to say...... "F$*# You!" and went back to his phone convo.

Oh no doubt, just last night I had some jackass in front of me at a redlight and I'm watching her through her back glass text her off with one hand. Light turns green, what does she do? Absolutely nothing she sits and sits, so I naturally nail the horn and she gives me the bird and finally goes. So I cruz up next to her, flip down the dark smoke and give her the creep stair for about 10 redlights. Hopefully I weirded her out enough she wont bird any bikers anymore. lol.
