I was trying to pass this guy in a completely yellow box truck for over 50 miles, other vehicles would pass him, I couldn't for some reason, he would speed up, slow down at unpredictable times in the middle lane on i75n from Atlanta clogging up a bunch of vehicles, I finally pass him and get a quick glimpse and see him with his left hand on the steering wheel holding his phone while his right hand was tapping the phone...

I followed someone on I-65 today that was on his phone for about 40 miles, I think we passed each other like 4 or 5 times.

Just about a daily occurrence, unfortunately. I call "9-1-1" when I see the drivers that are watching a movie on their tablet while driving. It's a fatality waiting to happen.

Last week there was a guy in a car that drifted into my lane within a couple feet of my drive tires cruising at 70mph. He was staring at a large screen smart phone that he was holding. I blew my air horn. I wanted to kill the guy because he dam near killed me and the other drivers in the vicinity.
