“Lockport, N.Y., police say tow truck driver Nicholas Sparks was texting on one cell phone while talking on another when he slammed into a car and crashed into a swimming pool.”

Additional proof, as if any were needed, that men can’t multitask. A woman can cook dinner, talk on the phone, watch Oprah Winfrey, smoke, and work on a soduku puzzle at the same time. But must guys have a hard time managing to walk and breathe at the same time.

Texting increases your chance of getting into an accident by 23 times — not 23 percent. (23 freaking times) Texting while driving should be banned by every state.

The hapless tow truck driver landed in hot water — figuratively and literally. But he deserves to land in jail, for his complete lack of concern for the well-being of his fellow drivers.
