You put it well thanks mister man you contribute a lot to this program thank you for the -- we appreciate it. Eyes you wanna get in on the conversation wanna comment on mystery man's comments we welcome you calls also wanna throw this out now haven't had any calls on but I -- let you know we are talking about it a Detroit judge James Callahan. Told nineteen year old -- a common set he needed someone to beat the hell out of him when he made a mistake as opposed to allowing him. Or encouraging him to do it to somebody else was he right in saying is physical punishment part of good child Maria. How did your childhood. Affair and will use beaten as a child -- threatened with -- or. All would be you know of any cases where people were not in May be should have been able to add that into the mix plus I got a ton of text messages and also cast your vote on debit and you'll dot com. To weigh in officially on our question what is the most annoying thing EC other drivers do on. Is that text that says I hate when he sees someone breastfeeding women driving Communist robot that always giving a chance to get -- off -- chest a lot of you're doing man several ways to communicate. You the most annoying driver -- it's 260187. ER 866. 8890 late seventies the phone line. If you wanna cast your vote and classy -- the distracted drivers has taken the lead again is now at 36% of you saying that is the most annoying driver habit. While -- very closely behind 35% say it's the tail -- And then the territorial drive -- would be 9% 9% also for bright light abuses and 12% for. Others my -- specialty you know the one that really annoys me is. The most is one bomb bomb bomb in the left lane I'm passing vehicles on the right but I'm not passing them fast enough for the guy behind so what he does is he jumps in the right lane. Speeds up tailgate on the right line traffic and all of a sudden jumps in to that may be 201 car land and I'm trailing. In gets in front -- me. That's number one on my list but as others do you know I'm getting a lot of women here it is one. As far as the distracted drivers saying I seen a lady eating crawfish have been. Crowded boulevard into all of these talk about multitasking -- -- she was there with -- Think I have an idea where they were is another text remember when you hear me read these Texas is not me this is the listeners probably down the middle of a two way street. Instead of being in their -- Seeing Elaine ending and having to make -- turn -- Conning in front of someone else today don't have to wait. I his another one how about the people that treat the stop sign like yield you know they call that are rolling stop bubbly. And here's another one would like a segment on rules regarding pedestrians and pedestrian crosswalk I don't think Nolan drivers. And any idea on the law. In that regard. And I agree with is another -- suggesting we make the written exams -- more stringent. Now I'm always the last time he took a written exam Tim Miller last time -- took one it's just not requiring wind guess it would oval -- it's bad enough. Stressful enough and takes long enough to just get anything done -- those motor vehicle registration places in Munich and speed them up. -- -- -- And is another left blame drivers. I drive a lot yet to see anyone pulled -- for driving in the -- Rotting with the flashes on when reigning practically makes them beings in mind that there's. On them. There's another text the folks that impede the flow of traffic they are the absolute worst drivers on planet earth did out of the left lane. And then Netherlands says they just leave ten to fifteen minutes -- alias -- them. -- you good luck on now. Israel is as I've been going the grand all the safety council for over twenty years and every year. When -- ago I ST people that have to get line in that cannot read English they need help to look and an exam but yet they put in a vehicle. How'd they get their driver's license could question. And is another one done what about pickup trucks to drop like they're in any sports car. And here's one this is -- one with regard to Detroit judge he says pushy I agree with the Detroit judge. Children need fathers especially boys. Another text of that regards as I got belted when I was younger I have never been arrested on any trouble with the law and my dad is still my best friend. And that was one and -- -- wanted to share with -- was coming amounting to enough on second but anyway and I was says Don if you wanna see a NASCAR race drive. I 55 southbound in the morning between five and 6 AM. I'll admit I drive 75 and every morning I get passed by no less then. Ten to fifteen cars at a time 75 on that stretch. You gonna get past no doubt about that. And here's another text them may be the biggest blanket issue is and everyone thinks they're more important and everyone else in that other drivers better move out of their way or else. And here's one they call it the accordion effect traveling the interstate system you get behind 218 Wheeler is doing 62 miles an hour. I call -- the accordion effect. Traffic stacks up behind the spreads out to you reach the next two passing each other. I understand it's not the driver's fault the company trying to save fuel really aggravating. And here's one that says with regard to Detroit judge put it like this my mom raised three boys on our own when I went to the Marines I had no problem at boot camp because I had a drill instructor and a home. She was -- and understand why she wants. And his don't want miles look at Don is a kid. It was -- the fact that -- hideous it was affected you could miss that scared us. Straight and -- -- a lot of truth and that I think you know he's got to show that he means business. But once that's established. Yeah I definitely think. That's a motivation now only knows it depends on the children some kids don't need. Others. Not so much. I here's another of people this is again aren't driving bad habits people who turn from the middle lane on to the on ramp from the West Bank expressway. But 'cause they don't wanna wait in line. And here's one from the biggest driving pet peeve or police offices who do not Obey the rules of the road. Then pull over someone for breaking the same rules they just. And here's one that says. Another Owens is mystery eighteen -- guy was great hope every one was listening. And yet another one says exactly what he said you get over to let the car merger on the mistake. Then they speed up so you can't get back old. And another says -- wants all aid truck driver eating a bowl of cereal. Milk getting. Another -- says they never text while they drive causes too distracting from reading newspaper and watching TV. And yet and have I can stand people come out of the clover -- include your -- you know I ten and don't yield to the vehicles getting off 510 you'll signed is on the right side. And they are looking left at traffic also taxicabs on diet and ride the left willing to win boulevard exit. And go from left lane and jump across four lanes to exit. As if they didn't know where the airport exit was first of all wanna congratulate. The winners of aren't for tickets to the -- and sportsman's festival expo -- slash inject. And John lab marine both won four tickets to of these -- was the festival in expo presented by super Chevy dealers.

Also got some calls who wanna talk about it we've given you some choices to cast your vote at WW all dot com. We're also thinking about -- this judge's name is James Callahan and he thinks that. Corporal punishment physical punishment is a good part of raising children. He told say look -- Cummings who was who came before him in the sentencing phase. That's all he needed somebody to beat the hell lot of in when he made a mistake. As opposed to allowing him more encouraging him to do it to somebody else can't remember what he was charged with but it was some type of physical. Altercation.
