Distracted drivers are what's truly scary

Success - Article sent! close

In reference to Fran Puchli's era of scary ("Era of concealed carry is scary," March 17), Fran, there are many other areas of our society that are more scary than concealed carry. One big area is driving on the road. Last week while riding on a tour bus to Navy Pier I observed 10 drivers' performance behind the wheel. Five were driving safely, four were driving with one hand on the wheel their other hand had a cellphone, and one was texting. In short, Fran, half the drivers on the road are a clear and present danger to you and me.

Those with concealed carry will be screened and taught and disciplined; what about those drivers?
