Distracted driving is becoming more of a challenge. With all the things that contend with our time, it's easy to get distracted while on the road. But what is distracted driving? Texting, talking on the phone and basically doing anything that keeps you from focusing on the road is considered distracted driving. Jana and Sheronde discuss the topic of distracted driving on this week's episode of Auto Estrogen Live!

WTF Radio will explore the pitfalls of how drunk drivers are the #1 killer of under 18 year old youth and how the BAC (blood alcohol concentration) system is designed so that nearly all responsible drinkers break the law despite responsible consumption. The way the BAC system is set up is much like ticketing bicyclers for exceeding a posted 15 mph speed limit on a beach boardwalk in California. One should ask: "How are cyclists to abide by a system which measures speed when bikes have no speedometers which to measure speed by?"
Enforced public BAC levels are as an ineffective measuring tool to those in need, though conveniently abscent from public access, as is the ability of drinkers to accurately predict their own BAC levels under .08 without any device or instrumentation. And those law makers overseeing DUI's almost assume drinkers are somehow suppose to "know" that their BAC levels exceed as little as a 10th of a percent above the legal limit so as to avert driving under the influence and breaking the law when exiting a bar.
And how is knowing ones BAC's done without any measuring device? By way of reciting the alphabet without missing a letter, walking a self-imposed foot-to-toe 20 step sobriety line test or "feeling" that one can handle an automobile responsibly?
I'm not sure these methods would be considered fail safe under the eyes of the law. The current nation wide technology most law enforcement agencies reliably and accurately utilize is the fuel cell breathalyzer test.
So the question then becomes why doesn't every single on premise drinking establishment provide such a measuring device so that cusomers can account for their legal limit of blood alcohol consumption prior to getting behind the wheel of an automobile? This is the question we will challenge and try to get to the root of.
