90 MPH, Josh Spaulding, Local Celebrity News Editor, Now Falls Asleep At The Wheel.

by Anura Guruge

He is a local celebrity.

So, he is ABOVE THE LAW.

I am going to get into trouble just for pointing this out.

But, I have KIDS that share the same roads that Mr. Joshua Spaulding drives! Yes, that scares me.

That is ALL I am going to say.

I will let Mr. Joshua Spaulding’s OWN WORDS, IN PRINT, say it all.

From everything that I have seen on TV about the Apple iWatch it is going to be MUCH MORE distracting that a smartphone.

People driving around, especially on I-93 (or equivalent) with an iWatch on their wrist SCARES me. This is NOT FUNNY.

I am pretty sure that the cell phone ban that comes into play on July 1, 2015 in New Hampshire will NOT cover smart watches.

Something has to be done.

I dread that we will get the first Apple iWatch related traffic fatality this weekend — within 48 hours of it becoming available. That is not a pleasant thought. It could be somebody that YOU or I know!

Not an easy problem to solve. This is more serious than DWI!

About an hour ago, while getting dressed (after my run), I saw a bimbo (and she indeed was one), on CNBC, glibly talking about her experiences DRIVING while wearing the new Apple Watch. She also volunteered that she had also been ‘told off’  — along the lines of “that is very distracting” — at a recent business meeting for continually glancing down at her watch, on her wrist, every time it beeped, vibrated whatever.

Distracted driving scares me, especially since nearly all young drivers do not seem to be able to drive unless they have GPS.

I dread that the Apple Watch is going to result in TOO MANY accidents. From what I can see, unless they act very, very quickly, the current ‘Distracted Driving’ laws will NOT cover the Apple Watch. Technically it is NOT a cell phone. Plus it will be difficult for the police to enforce Apple Watch wearing while driving.

The Watch is going to be more distractive than a phone per se since it is attached to your wrist and it ‘does things’. People will GLANCE DOWN at their wrist. Worse still they will move their hands, and with it the steering wheel, to look at the Watch.

This is going to be a problem. I am SURE Apple has warnings and disclaimers on the packaging that comes with the Watch. But how do you stop a person from USING their Apple Watch when driving? I am a loyal, long term APPL shareholder though we haven’t had a single Apple product in the house for well over 15 years!

This bothers me. Deaths will come. Right now 9 deaths a DAY due to distracted driving. That is 9 too much. What do YOU think?

Here is the YouTube video. Worth watching.

As you can see IF you check out above post, I asked this very same question a year ago.

We have a lot of these accidents in Sri Lanka — even now. I think ditto in India. When I was about eight I was on a train in India that ran over a man. I didn’t feel anything and I am not sure if anybody did. But, the train came to a screeching halt in the middle of ‘nowhere’ in rural Southern India. There was a lot of commotion and shouting. It was quite frightening and disturbing to an eight year old. We finally heard that there was a man under the train and that they were trying to get him out.

I can even understand kids getting run over, BUT, for the world of me I cannot fathom how adults can get run over IF they have room [i.e., not trapped by platforms etc.] to get out of the way.

Trains are not whisper quiet — even on welded tracks. PLUS they make the track and ground vibrate well ahead of their approach. That is what gets me.

Like these two ‘poor’ BART workers. Didn’t they FEEL the train coming. OK, they could have thought it was coming from the other track — but wouldn’t you at least look up when you feel a train coming?

I really don’t get it.

Bothers me NO END.
