The new RockCrawler Sedan prototype vehicle. Looks like it needs a little bit more ground clearance.

Ooh, a BMW 1 series showing that even the smallest BMW can be crashed just as stupidly as a 3 series. Also proof that one meets a far better class of people on BMWs than in BMWs.

There's something very fishy about this picture ... can't put my finger on it but it almost appears to be a photoshop. There's no visible damage to the car ... seems like there would be a scrape or something.

I think she probably hit the corner way too hard and wound up with two wheels in the air, but before the car came back down to earth the undercarriage got snagged on that there rock. Either that or she just plain slammed into it and instead of smashing her front end the rock acted as a sort of a ramp. We can't see any damage because the whole front clip is blocked by that red car, but I'll bet there's a pretty decent scar on her bumper.

If the woman in the picture is the driver, she was probably doing the same thing when she wrecked the car as she is doing now, TALKING ON THE DAMN CELL PHONE...

I talk on my cell phone while driving ... it's just a matter of knowing what the priority is ... you can talk on the cell phone and still pay attention to driving. It's the people that lack concentration that are the problem, not the cell phone.

#9, You're joking, right? I guess that driving with one hand is the best... *rolls eyes*

#9, I don't know what the priority is in your state, but here in NJ, it is ILLEGAL to talk on a cell phone while driving a car. You might want to check with your local police to find out if it's ok in your state. (ALthough, alot of people are still driving and talking since the law was passed last year.)

#11, For me (and any sane human being) the priority while driving is car control and situational awarness. I don't think this can be achieved while using a phone (even with a hands-off system).

#10, I'm not kidding. I'm not saying that the cell phone is the priority, I am saying if you are on your cell phone, what is happening around you on the road is the priority.

Do you shift with your feet? If you drive a manual tranny, then obviously you don't drive with BOTH hands on the wheel at all times.

I suppose you NEVER change your radio station or adjust your HVAC while you are driving either. Cause then, you have to take a hand off the wheel and your eyes off the road.

Talking on a cell phone is not illegal in this state. I suppose talking on a CB radio should be illegal in that case as well. OR BETTER YET, how about having any passengers in the car being illegal ... think about how often you glance at the person you are talking to, or whom is talking to you. The point is, it depends on the driver. Some can handle the conditions safely, some cannot.

Care to compare driving records? Or do they keep driving records in Poland?

#13, Well, no. We have no PCs to keep them, no internal combustion engines, hell, we even don't know what a wheel is.
Shifting: 1-2secs
Radio adjust: 5-15secs (already dangerous)
Talking with passengers: guess what, I don't look at them.

#14 how rude! It's good manners to make eye contact when you're talking to someone :P

none of this is a problem when you are to poor for a cell phone like me

One of the leading causes of car accidents today is people talking on cell phones. Think about it, modern cell phones are the size of matchboxes today, with all the trouble you go through pulling the damn thing out of your pocket or dash and messing around with the phone numbers while trying to stay in your lane and follow the rules of the road it's amazing more people don't get in accidents. I can't count how many times some dumb ass cut me off while chattering away on their nokia. Simply put, for most it's just not a good idea.
And don't feel bad #16, my cell phone's the size of a cinder block and takes 3 days to charge.

Driving while intoxicated is a bigger problem than cell phone use.

Maybe you (#17) should get a modern cell phone that has voice dial ... you don't have to look at the phone. In fact, they've got speaker phone so you don't even have to hold it to your ear. $49.00 at your local cellular provider.

Inattentive drivers are the problem, wether the inattention is because they're using a phone, drunk, high, reading, eating, applying makeup, fiddling with the radio, chatting with passengers, whatever

alright children... I will turn this forum around if you dont quit bickering. The fact is, anything takes your attention span away, including thinking, but talking on a cell phone makes you apply more of your brain power to talking to the person on the other end of the line. Don't believe me gearcat? Tell it to my Psych professor who just read us a study about it. However, no matter what I say, nothing is going to cram itself through that thick skull of yours, but Im an optimist (sometimes) so I guess it might happen. Sure some people can still keep enough of their attention on the road while talking on a cell phone, but some people can juggle 5 razor sharp knives while jumping through a flaming hoop on a unicycle... I wouldnt trust the average person to have that brain power, therefore I dont trust you blabbering on your cell phone because you think something can't wait until you aren't operating a death box on wheels. I win.
