I like how the comments on every accident story are about why doesn't the government do more of this or more of that. If someone mentions why don't people just me more responsible they are flamed.

I have a hard time believing that she was afraid the phone would "jam the brake or gas pedal" and that is why she tried to pick it up.

Now that really irritates me.

If she had not been reaching down to grab her cell phone, she would have seen the bus and been able to avoid the accident all together.

Yep, I had a friend do something just like that. Reached over to grab a CD, veered into on comming traffic, oversteered and rolled his Blazer.
