You know all those bad drivers? They’re worse than we thought

Our motoring correspondent is on maternity leave, so I’ll note these two items. Which, frankly, are quite terrifying, given how badly we drive around here (as Keri has pointed out).

First, cell phone drivers are even more dangerous than the experts thought. Thank you, federal government, for neglecting to mention this when the study came out six years ago.

And now Keri has to deal with these morons with a new baby in the car. You have my sympathy, pal.
