How not to use your BlackBerry: Frontseat Driver

Richard Pryor says no to an idiot who uses his BlackBerry while driving

Like any person, I have a certain amount of pet peeves — things that push my ‘angry’ button. As one of the charter members of the BlackBerry Nation, many of my pet peeves revolve around people using their smartphone in a way that might get someone killed. For example, take the Neanderthal above, gunning along at a nice 75 mph, all the while fully reading his BlackBerry with a hand that should be on the steering wheel. So engrossed was he in his BlackBerry, that the ghost of Richard Pryor could have jumped in front of his windshield and he wouldn’t have noticed.

Kids: don’t try this at home (or in the car). Otherwise, not even the BlackBerry Helmet will save you.

    I don’t think this is such a bad thing… blackberry users, particularly younger ones, are the kings and queens of multitaskers. However I know everyone cannot safely use their phone while driving, some can. Only new drivers drive with 2 hands anyway… & we can’t see how far any other drivers are in the picture to be able to tell if he has a comfortable “cushion” around his vehicle.
