WXLK PD Drives Home The Issue Of Bad Drivers
March 17, 2010 at 8:36 AM (PT)
Across the nation, state lawmakers are moving to limit/outlaw the use of mobile devices in the hands of persons behind the wheel of a moving vehicle. While such moves are laudable, there remains another class of driver whose bad and sometimes reckless behavior merits a little social demonization (and some laughs).
Enter WHEELER Top 40 WXLK (K92)/ROANOKE PD KEVIN SCOTT and his website AMERICA CAN'T DRIVE, a site created at the start of the year to provide people the opportunity to exact their road rage revenge by pointing a finger (and their camera devices) at people engaging in questionable and sometimes dangerous driving and parking techniques. Submitted images are then posted on the site.
SCOTT realizes that taking pictures of bad drivers, while you're actually behind the wheel, is considered … uh … bad driving and offers this disclaimer on the homepage: 'Safety on the road is the goal of this site. Americacantdrive.com discourages you from taking photos or recording video while driving.' We concur. Have a designated paparazzi instead.
Visit the site at www.americacantdrive.com … but not while driving.
