    A few more people needs to move here, we don't have enough. The roads aren't crowded at all. What do you think Raleigh Leaders?

    Driving around Raleigh is a religious experience... I'm praying that these maniacs don't kill me every time I strap in. I've never seen such consistently selfish, hot headed driving anywhere else. Plus, the second you get off the beltline and/or highway it is the opposite... hayseeds driving way under the speed limit without a care for anyone else. I think we should invest heavily in public transportation and take away all these idiots' licenses.

    While I agree with the "no texting while driving" sentiment, it is my opinion that drivers in general, but ESPECIALLY in that area, do not realize that 85 MPH in a 3500lb. vehicle is just not safe. Not to mention being 6 inches away from the car in front of them. It is quite scary driving out there.

    What does it matter who was chatting? It is currently not illegal to be TALKING on your cell phone while driving, it IS illegal to be texting while driving.

    If I was the po-po I would be checking the cell phone towers to see who was chatting during the time of the wreck.
