I don't know, I don't know if any of the drivers of these cars was doing something "other" than driving, when involved in an accident, but it may be. Perhaps someone was lighting a cigarette, phoning to someone, reading a newspaper, writing the shopping list, etc. Of course I think these cars are here not only for accidents but because of their "age"…. So, when reading the theme "Mortality", I thought to the last Werner Herzog's movie: "From One Second To The Next" (you can see it free on youtube), about people texting while driving….. I usually see people driving and reading, doing a makeup, looking something in the bag, not using the seat belt, phoning and TEXTING!!! It is very dangerous. Sometime, driving on highway, so a particular type of road, more safety than normal roads (are you sure?!?!?), I answer to a call using the "legal" earphones….well, nothwithstanding my utmost and particular attention, with both hands on the wheel, at the end of the call I don't remember exactly the part of road I have just done….You may imagine what can be TEXTING!!! Let's all avoid this type of behavior.

Italiano:

Nos so, non so proprio se qualcuno dei guidatori di queste auto stesse facendo "altro" oltre a guidare, quando e' stata coinvolta in un incidente, ma e' possibile. Magari qualcuno si stava accendendo la sigaretta, telefonava, leggeva il giornale o scriveva la lista della spesa, ecc. Naturalmente penso che una buona parte di auto siano qui per via della loro vetusta'… Così', quando ho letto il tema "Mortality", ho subito pensato all'ultimo film di Werner Herzog (liberamente visibile su Youtube), "From One Second To The Next" che parla di gente coinvolta in incidenti perché' stava scrivendo messaggi sul cellulare durante la guida…..Anche a me capita di vedere gente che mentre guida legge, si rifa' il trucco, cerca nella borsa, non usa la cintura di sicurezza, telefona o SCRIVE MESSAGGI!!! E' estremamente PERICOLOSO!!! Qualche volta, in autostrada, cioè' un particolare tipo di strada, certamente più' sicura di una strada normale, mi capita di ricevere una telefonata: rispondo usando l'auricolare, cioè' un dispositivo "di legge". Bene, a volte, alla fine della chiamata, con le mani sul volante, nonostante la maggior attenzione prestata faccio fatica a ricordare bene il pezzo di strada percorsa durante la chiamata (provate a farci caso anche voi)….Immaginiamo cosa può' voler dire scrivere messaggi. Evitiamo questo genere di comportamenti.
