Bumper Stickers Inside the Beltway

Here are a couple of bumper stickers spotted today in Maryland just outside of Washington, DC:

1. "Real Men Love Jesus"
(I'm including this one so I don't get accused of being too one-sided)

2. "Drive Now, Talk Later" accompanied by a picture of a crazed driver talking on a cell phone.
Now that's a valuable public service announcement to benefit all of us.

Speaking of which, hats off to DC Blogger Velvet in Dupont for griping that DC drivers and DC cops alike are ignoring DC's first-in-the-nation law against hand-held cell phone use while driving. Last year, I wrote to the DC Police, the Mayor's office and each DC City Council member about this. I think I received one response from one DC Councilmember (Jack Evans?), noting that someone on his staff had received a ticket for this. If so, that staffer was one of few. The DC cops are apparently too busy writing parking tickets to enforce this law that could save lives and prevent accidents.

I like that driver public service announcement...i hate drivers that talk on their cell phones and fail to pay attention to the road...hence why I don't drive and have no license...lol

In that case, you're safer than the rest of us, but watch out for cell phone-gabbing drivers running up over the curb while you're walking or bike riding.
