The war on drugs on the nose to speak stool wall I don't know what it speaks to our offense or one I don't know but it's pretty low tech but it works. A it is built out of admitted that I don't I don't I don't know anything there are people on those subtle recently. Yet. He had already big surely good morning under the W melting summit calling him. It's coming thank you wouldn't subject my yeah and I really thought of that news apparently because drive. On the eyes and everyday. And it seems like no one is looking at the whales anymore. Everyone has dropped what is so all look in the in dual forty dollars and in the. It surely limited idea. Mom I saw somebody right on that very stretch you know free as a young lady and it's kind of hard when you know is going a hundred miles an dollar because I tried to keep Bob whether. Taxing and I even looking at the wake wishing on an honor miles an hour in a Prius while nine you know degrees and 200 she's gone pretty fans. I mean everyone is doing an older fortunate that the morning. All. In Rome in my age bracket and these were not drive and looking at all. I would tell you man my belt light small ball that they're allowed don't people that used. I saw daddy other dale older guy get that big jitterbug on his. On is a steering wheel was spread out like a family Bible. You don't mean does that behavior in me knows that big innings trying to attacks on and it was terrible. But you're right big surely it's like you know what it's like. It's like now. Actually holding the wheel wouldn't drive they get paid attention to what you're doing and has become a secondary in ancillary activity. But it's not eggs at us it's. As rat. I was in the wall were two of the most creative things that was you know we're we're pretty. That's why I like listening to your station because you subject matter that talks on north wit that have allowed that the talk Bob. They surely are up George I am so tired of talking to run down drop I am just tired tired tired tired tired. I think I says unless anything happens let's just. You know. I mean we had covered news was to see what happens and then you know will C wood where it happens from there because we don't we don't know anyway would just guess and. I'll miners toward Hillary what you're about presidential wanna give the guy chants. What you've got awkward door decree is dying and all that warms and that's what got you Google earth and also the week. We did and the way that I created material in it or. I'd thank you big surely push yelling great arm too you don't the following announcement. Acheson suggestion. Done Redmond triple A spokesman joins us right now Don good morning Hillary got good well thank you good morning. I'm gonna tell you this my daughter was out of town and had a dead battery and was crying and didn't know what to do. So I took that AAA envelopes that had been sitting on account today meant to sign up for. Since she went out of school out of town school year and a half ago let me today so my friend there are no people don't like Tripoli when you got a daughter around town that hasn't dead battery. So you saved her life and I just think it's a great organization and I think if Danielle. Have kids out of town I would strongly advised. Did he get them Tripoli and. I applaud but hey let's get straight talk about it. I think they think it's pretty likely that they have you know and right right exactly that's yet. Bad part about my siblings to policy for crying out but again oh wait siblings of followed. That. Sooners. Can't island gets the better he. Apparently aren't about scrambling you know what to do that let's get on with the subject matter year of driving one would what exactly do we find out. Well this particular. That culture say the index it looks like. And look at it all drivers that would be breaking down by age groups who looks like our armed millennial young people on the heels of these are. Ages nineteen to 24. All are among the worst behaved drive yours Lisa I want 88%. Of them. Admit to speedy running red lights and then Eckstein as well. And maybe an issue what is the age range are we decide Millen nicely. Team to 2040 particular age group as it is the war. And it seems when you when you look at some other. Attitudes. About it in other there. And other 001. Half times more likely to admit that their texting while there while they're driving in this we've been past thirty days but that's. About 66% in the bill and it vs forty of the rest of the population and population. And that Google as an adult scene thing. You know perhaps and maybe they shouldn't we do it they don't think it's that dangerous. But boy if you are not texting in the drop what they surely use it out dangerous it is an Indy look at some of the studies were. That your parent level. All your texting it's very very similar to someone who's impaired with alcohol. It it used to be whatever tickle our. Driving erratically pompano lines or slowdowns. Ya my immediate thought was a letter to draw driver. Now. They don't think OK that persons either draw or texting. Matt how close leaving it keeps on the wallet well the problem. As seen here in this story in many cases even the forty to 59 Euro group is worse than teenagers. When it comes to those kind of behaviors and. You know that's the. Few years ago when one. I think it's Seventeen Magazine did a survey. Look at it teen driver driving habits and. And at that time the the age group about the 1618. You're about 70% admitted that they text while they're drive and an opponent on the phone. And adults their parents were like 35 or 40% backup a parents have gone past the kids in the war on Eckstein and all appalled all the time. Made into other risky behaviors causes such as speeding and running like that. A beat out CPU market we all have story of things are witnessing great drivers to that. Now have a big banks are seen as more on just packed in apple is paced time mean while there. At its core. Maybe lie went into life FaceBook now to yet. It's incredible man I'm Tonya so what do I mean Heidi it changes it's a culture in people. Look in and I don't want anybody to take this wrong at all in no way am I encouraging this. But apparently some people can adapt to it because I used to think. But for the good lord any before cell phones or texting or any thing if you look at. What it takes to get in an accident Don justice lit unguarded moments and a split second right and unguarded moment. It's amazing that they don't have a 100000 people a date killed in this country in amazes me but I guess people adapt and and maybe some can adapt to taxing or maybe it's the good lord it working and I'll know when I do you change that culture. Well aid to dictate how of that that art and we've actually seen. An increase in the number traffic count these compact. Point 115 to 2016 the number I would cut the Pallet these increased by 7% the largest. A single year increase of fifty years something's going on I think it has to do a lot with those distractions in its order report exactly what was going on but. We've we've become more distracted so while we may think we can handle a lot of it's a bit interesting in analysts. Obviously we're an outwardly. Well lieutenant heal some had. Dublin is your quick dated skip a group. Hum forty to 59 and in the group in between ever nineteen a Tony for bad. Forty to 59 bad and an in between they're not as bad like maybe at that point airlines they're rather cautious. We start dedicating more cautious. We'll work 75 or 675. That were little more cautious but I do hope it's more than act. Of those other respond to any you know up. Bit speedy never run red lights and I am texting. I was one and around about the pocket between states when he won forty days and now. Honestly did little bit of good news game slide at a morning and other WL. More. Or pacing hide it down as well. Hey Don how are you good morning thank you opt. But got Tommy had been jogging in in my neighborhood and enable it to batted about on our ears. And that he spoke about that earlier and they kill almost killed a leader. About about. So great conflict in count in the last three or four years it it got really really. There come out in the subdivision like games out of agent yet got more on it a week about. DC more people on the phone then nine in his does he get your attention when he sees somebody not on the phone. It it does really. And yet it's a good point not used to run a lot with traffic. But I'm too scared now because they Mike is beer off the road out from. Right it at least up learning if you if you watch him. You know it it's very Italian I used to ten years ago yet the teenage eagle or school driving kind of bad. And that was it initially trying to put makeup on their RI IE and that was the worksheets seat but it is it is extremely dangerous for runners on the road now and a scene. It's scary it is seen people distracted not our beat people. Snapped chatting an eight time it cricket crazy America. Almost stopped the Kabul time a light on that stop and just joined a gym and go around the treadmill because. Really package up and perhaps white. You know actually dive into you on economic. Now outlawed a gentleman you know got out and in effect he was sorry that this set and you know let them out he all the time. I had that same thing happens anywhere guy they didn't seem Meehan nine almost ran over me in the dog and I did you know money grants. And he turned around and authority was in the comeback like knoller knew we go road rage. But he apologizing yhency me you know he was texting and driving in the in the Manila. It was a guy you know. I started a charter right and in the light of Butler and an early early morning when it got dark. Not to enact. Starter right it's six now and it is that it's real dangerous that he's been and it all alone at all all. Thank RJB. I every parent and want Cheney's man on talent yet done it would it be. Com. Is there anyway politically resist something triple A would would be for maybe insurance companies to his somehow work it where you can't use. Even though this is scientifically possible but that phone moment work in that car. There is there are. Technology available I don't think there's go to their normal legal make definitely environment mandatory. Though I certainly. Would recommend even this year and most phones come with it an app that you couldn't. He goes straight to voicemail as long indeed Texaco cars in motion and and maybe that's our best intentioned idea that. A target so that I am not attempted to make pick up that ball. Or or do any kind of distraction with that with that phone. But it's still allows their case there's an emergency Arkin called emerge to people. But. That's phones out and it used the UN at its next.
