Yesterday morning, while one of my friends tried to tell me that cell phone use doesn’t cause distracted driving, divers fished the body of an Antioch woman out of the water after she drove her Ford Expedition into the Sacramento River. She was on the phone with her daughter when she drove her vehicle onto a boat ramp and into the river. Just before the call was cut off, the victim told her daughter that her car was filling up with water and to phone her insurance company.

A shift in Tuscon PD policy regarding ticketing scofflaw cyclists and motorists?
[Tuscon PD Sergeant Jerry] Skeenes said they are using plain-clothes bicycle officers who are are being followed by an unmarked police car looking for drivers who violate the three-foot law. Bicycle officers often get more room than regular cyclists, but said cars do pass too closely occasionally. According to Skeenes, the bicycle officers often can not catch up to cars. The unmarked police car allows the vehicles to be caught to cite the driver.
