This looks very interesting but I can't play with only one arm. At least if I was in my car I could steer with my knee so I could text with my good arm.

You wanna see my itinerary?

.08/0
i think the key to it is to scan the road (lane indicators) and look ahead (at the actual gates) before glancing over to the phone. Also helps to NOT be lookin' at it TRYING to analyze the ? and pick an answer; that, and knowing how to type should cut down on the time you'll use with ur eyes OFF the road.
So i think that if you're gonna text and drive, wait til you're at the damn stoplights

that shit happened to me today! i was merging onto 294 from irving park, and this jacknut cuts from the far left lane into far right. i'm sure he didn't even see me. then he has to slam on the brakes to keep from rear-ending the traffic... i slam on my brakes, 50-0 in like 2 secs, the snot rocket backfired twice. i should have kicked in his moussed-up hair, sonny crocket sunglass wearin' door in when i went around him.
