    I'm going to go out on a limb-

    I don't think Luvitlo is a bad guy.

    I think we should give him the benefit of the doubt.

    Lets all forget that he refuses to use punctuation, and that he makes remarks that most of us would retract in a matter of seconds.

    Maybe were misunderstanding him.

    Regardless- I don't think Luvie means to offend, or does things with negative intentions, or even on purpose.

    I do it all the time, in fact about 10% of the time I'm driving I'm texting. I have he entire keyboard memorized so i don't even look down at all. I look at my phone to read it and then press reply and then thats it. I'm always looking at the road driving perfectly fine while executing a perfect text message haha.

    btw. luvitlo sounds like a redneck to me. Just throwin that out there.
    Texting while driving is irresponsible, no matter how good you think you are at it. Drunk drivers say the same thing.

    I used to text while driving, but I stopped because I had the habit of driving with my knee and most times I'd end up over one of the white lines.

    Before you start critiquing anyones intellect you might want to pay attention to your own.

    Now back on topic. What ever excuses you attempt to make are
    irrelevant and show a shocking disregard for the people you share the road with.

    The fact that you know people who help you practice this stupidity does not
    make it less stupid. The fact that you and your insurance agent can share
    "quality time" on the road only means that at that moment there were two
    verifiable morons on the road.

    This may be very harsh, but the one day when your "skills" betray you I
    sincerely hope you are the one that gets the worst of it, not the person
    that was driving responsibly and intelligently.

    Graceless just cuerious did you install a back up cam and alarm on your car as well, do you use your mirrors or are they better off in the trash. I have a commercial license do you think I would do illegal stuff oh wait I have a show truck bagged, shaved mirrors, dark tint, your type think we mini truckers are trash scum right. Met you type once and after he keyed my truck he had a whole new understanding of trash. The 9 G's that he had to fork over while the cop witnessed and added it to the police report helped gotta love video on cell phones.but he brought up the "same stuff" that is illegal, modified this took off that. The cop looked and said he sees nothing wrong with my truck. It has valid tags inspection sticker and looks good but he got an extra ticket for parking in a handicap with no permit and expired inspection sticker. Claimed he was a college grad and kwew the law. So why did e brake so many. Point is yes I speed and text we all do stupid things. Cuss words is one of the dumbest things on earth when there are 10 other words you can use that express the view and don't get stared out.

    What does this incoherent paragraph of mindless rambling have to do with anything, besides the last portion where you admit to being an ignorant and inconsiderate driver? This I'd like to know.

    Since you don't actually know me let me straighten you out on a few things.

    1) You have a commercial license. Great! I have a license with a Q restriction
    In CT that makes me a fire apparatus driver and I get tired of cleaning up the
    messes on the road you and your ilk leave behind.

    2) As a matter of fact I do use my mirrors constantly, have an alarm and a
    backup cam. What was your point with this.

    3) I could not care less about your tricked out "ghetto" mobile. Bragging
    about only counts if the people you are bragging to gave a damn. I don't.

    4) You do not know my type or what I think of anyone so save your imagined
    outrage for someone else.

    5) Finally I do not believe I actually swore at you, and you can't show me where I did.

    But my point remains the same. If you are so irresponsible to truly think
    what you are doing is safe, fine. The graveyards are full of people who
    thought the same.

    And for the love of all that is holy, learn how to spell. You are not acquitting
    your supposed intellect well here.

    All I read is lip svc ..... You have a history of NONSENSE(axxhole) replies all over this board and MATURE/RESPONSIBLE people are tired of your so called outlook on life and trying to stand out! YOU stand out alright but NOT in a good light.


    *** since when is axxhole a cuss word??? go back to school, better yet - find a school that actually teaches self respect, proper english. I think your city councilman should be ashamed of how schools w/graduate axxholes w/out actually hearing them speak in public, learning to VALUE human life!

    Why don't you learn to spell ghetto before you start spouting off at the mouth about "bruthas" who can't afford as much as you. And frankly, no one here is interested in knowing a little about you.
