I haven’t listened to @RandomTroll’s MP3 file, but I’m pretty sure that’s the same story. There was only one story on NPR this morning about a distracted driver.

Oops, couldn’t open here. Thanks.

Florida doesn’t get ALL the oddities (a LOT, but not all!)

For a short time, I employed a realtor who confessed that he used to read the newspaper while driving on the Florida Turnpike. When he answered his phone and texted while driving through South Florida traffic with me in the car, I fired him.

As well you should! At the very least, you could refuse to ride with him but that practice showed more than his lack of driving skills!

I’ve driven past people reading on the highway but it has been at least 20 years since the last.

My mother used to read books at stop lights, but I haven’t seen her do that in about 30 years.

Replicated in the opening chapter of Carl Hiaassen’s “Razor Girl”.

I once passed a guy who was playing a tambourine with both hands, singing.
