Photo: Cathy KatesAfter the last Vikings game at the Metrodome on December 29, 2013, I came back to work and said the fans on that historic day were docile.  So quiet through most of the game and couldn't figure it out.  We thought it was because people wanted to "say" they were at the last game...now get it over with.  But after watching this viral video, it hit me!  (and I was guilty too)

It’s A Great Time Of The Year, Please Watch Out For Each Other On the Road

Wednesday was an absolutely beautiful day in the Northland.  I love this time of year, with the anticipation of summer and all the fun it brings.  This is also the time of year that motorcycles come out and more and more runners and people on bikes share the roads with drivers.  It's a great vibe to have people out enjoying themselves, but it's also a great time to remind everyone to please pay close attention to their surroundings and look out for each other.   I can speak first hand of this, as I've been out running several days a week for several weeks and am concerned of what I see while running on the road.

States Should Ban All Cellphone Use, Texting, Emailing By Drivers, US Safety Investigators Say

I know there are those who say it's government trying to intervene again, but I think this would be a good thing even though it would make me change my personal cell phone usage.  While I never read or send texts while driving, I do use my cell phone when I drive sometimes but I always use my Bluetooth so I can keep both hands on the wheel.  I don't feel distracted, but there are those that would beg to differ.  I also realize that there have been far too many accidents and deaths cell phone related so something has to be done.  No call or text is worth dying or killing someone for.

 
Texting, emailing or chatting on a cellphone while driving is simply too dangerous to be allowed, federal safety investigators declared Tuesday, urging all states to impose total bans except for emergencies.

The classification was issued Tuesday in Lyon, France, by the International Agency for Research on Cancer after a review of dozens of published studies. The agency is an arm of the World Health Organization and its assessment now goes to WHO and national health agencies for possible guidance on cell phone use.
