Someone has been landscaping in the neighborhood and the idiot contractors dropped pebbles (not one of the Flintstones) all over the route I take to get out of the subdivision.   :censored: ing  :censored: .

I know all security measures can be defeated, all locks can be picked, all defenses can be breached. With all the things manufacturers are being forced to put into new cars to deal with idiots that text and talk while driving, isn't there a device that can be installed in every car that will jam or defeat cell phone signals or devices, or render them useless for the duration. I know, in 2 weeks, somebody would have a patch to go around it. But can't they look into that angle, instead of accepting defeat going on the offensive and coming up with things like that? I'm sure they have. Just thinking out loud.

Cell phones allow people to call 911, and passengers can safely talk on the phone while the driver is operating the car. They just can't block all cell traffic.

And here we were, thinking that texting was bad....

I feel a new rule coming on. I wonder if she has Geico- it could be the new tagline "In fifteen minutes, you could..... nevermind."

People in front of me at stop lights who start off then stop when the other lane get a green arrow thinking they should go, then 5 seconds later when they do get the green light, because they are texting, they just sit there not paying attention until I have to blow my horn, this has been happening with increased regularity over the past year or so. I know this is just distracted driving due to cell phone and texting, but now its another sub-problem I've noticed.

Drivers in the other lane who aren't anticipating the changing light, get surprised by the Green, hit the accelerator instead of smoothly starting out.  Are they thinking (being generous) that they are doing the right thing by speeding up.

How about when the light changes, we all go at the same time!  Like a locomotive, kind of, pulling its cars.  Sure, the last car does not move instantaneously, but the traffic would sure move along easier.

That's freakin crazy talk right there! This would mean that drivers would have to start paying attention to what is going on around them.    :o

Reminds me of the scene in "American Graffitti" when Toad, while driving Steve's "bitchin" '58 Impala, thinks he has a green light, but its only an arrow to turn, he pulls forward, then stops, but leaves it in reverse, when he gets a green light he takes off.... backwards into the car behind him. This has happened to me, but I was lucky enough to have no one behind me when I backed up a bit when he never put it back in drive, luckily his reverse lights worked.

If there is one thing that's makes me  :_shudder_Emoticon , it's my daughter's Nissan Quest 2004.  She came in and said it wouldn't start.   :censored: !  It took awhile to crank but it did start.  Probably the swearing at it helped.  Took my scanner out and ran a check of the codes and it called out camshaft sensor bank 1.  Where the  :censored: is bank 1?  Did a little searching and of course it's towards the back of the engine compartment nigh on inaccessible.  It couldn't be bank 2, that's too  :censored: ing easy.  On the positive side, Advance Auto had the part.  I decided to get two as the other one was probably on it's way out as well.  Also figured to learn how to install it on the easy side, bank 2.  Couldn't get the  :censored: ing connector off!  Took me an hour of tinkering and looking at youtube vids to figure it.  I hate  :censored: ing Nissans.  I'll get the rear bank in the morning when it's cooler outside and the engine is cold.  I'm glad it broke down in my driveway rather than some other place, though.
