Reading While Driving, Seriously?

I gave up bik­ing on the roads this sum­mer for a good rea­son – too many knuck­le­heads tex­ting, chat­ting, even read­ing, while dri­ving. Read­ing a nov­el while dri­ving? A com­plete aber­ra­tion? Appar­ent­ly not. Join­ing the genius above, we have the Port­land, Ore­gon bus dri­ver giv­ing more thought to the Kin­dle than the road. And then this com­plete piece of work mind­less­ly mov­ing from the tra­di­tion­al book, to the Kin­dle, then to the smart­phone.

    And yet no one has a prob­lem with her using her smart­phone video cam­era while dri­ving? Why so much hatred at the book read­ers. Not like he was doing it in town where kids are run­ning across the road. he’s out on a straight open road and he’s prob­a­bly a bet­ter dis­tract­ed dri­ver than most peo­ple are reg­u­lar dri­vers.
