A woman driving near London, Ontario, Canada, was concentrating on her make up rather than the road. Consequently, the police officer who observed it charged the 30-year-old with reckless driving. Ontario Police Const. Joanna Van Mierlo says the provinces distracted driving legislation usually refers to the use of hand-held devices, such as cell phones, while driving. But, if a driver chooses to watch the mirror as she applies mascara and lipstick, and not the road, the legislation can also apply. “Although we multi-task in many other areas of our lives, while driving is not the time,” says Van Mierlo.

I'm a retired guy who loves to get involved in community affairs and issues especially when I feel there is some injustice involved or that I have a valid point of view. I still believe that the pen is mightier than the sword although lately, I am wondering if this is still true.
