    There are many ways to become distracted while driving. Certainly, the woman who rear ended you had her first thought on her child not on the road. And so it goes. BTW, newer automobiles have gadgets and displays on their dashboards that almost emulate an aircraft cockpit. My son's new Honda even has cameras that turn on to show you approaching autos and side views. All that gadgetry can be distracting.

    The solution Jake? Drive with a good co-pilot and leave the gadgets to her.

    Charlie, that's pretty much what I do. By myself, it's set up the iPhone for navigation and streaming music I want, put it in the holder and don't touch it again while moving. I do have hands-free calling, so I can get a call, but I'm a ham radio operator, so I've got lots of experience talking and driving and don't let the call distract me. And the interface to my car lets me pick up the call with a button on the wheel, and to hang it up with another button on the wheel. So I don't touch the phone while the car is moving, period.

    Maybe we ought to teach what all pilots know about how to deal with an emergency--aviate, navigate, communicate, in that order. So when you are in the driver's seat, your #1 task is to drive, and all else must be subordinate to that one task.

    I didn't know you were a ham radio operator. Many of my military buddies were ham radio operators. I still hold an FCC Radio Telephone First Class license (it never expires) but that was back in the days when I was looking for a job at a TV or FM station as an on call station engineer. I do remember the FCC also issued (back then) a license for a Radio Telegraph Operator. The test for that was basically the same as the Radio Telephone license test but included a very stringent requirement and test for morse code. I never really tried to learn code.

    Someone mentioned that the Amateur ham tests did not include code anymore. Is that true?

    Yep, no more code. I learned code and got up to 13 wpm, tried to get better and got stuck at 18 wpm. I ended up with an Advanced License, needed 20 wpm for Extra. Now, I suppose I could try for Extra by updating my technical side, but I'm happy where I am. Don't do much hamming right now because of an antenna situation, so I don't need that little extra bandwidth that the Extra license authorizes.
