Using cell phones

Bob and Ed, co-owners of High Point Roofing, drove out of the company yard with a load of metal flashings to drop at a job site on their way to a daily round of estimates.

As Ed drove, Bob used his cell phone to contact some customers and double-check the addresses to which they were headed. Ed yelled suddenly as he slammed on his brakes.

"Did you see that guy?" Ed shouted. "He wasn't even looking! He almost took off the front of my truck!"

"What do you expect?" asked Bob. "He was talking on a cell phone."
