CELL PHONES ARE DANGEROUS: ESPECIALLY FLAT BATTERIES
Using cell phones while driving has been shown to be a major contributor to road accidents. But it's not just while you're on the move that danger lurks just behind you.
55-year-old Romanian road construction engineer, Gheorghe Christinel, was working on laying down the asphalt on a new road in the town of Timisoara. But during what appears to have been an unsanctioned break, he whipped out his cell phone to chat with some.
Tragically, he was so engrossed in the conversation that he failed to near an approaching road roller - 20 tons of metal that was reversing in his direction. The driver failed to see Christinel and the inevitable happened; he was killed under the rollers.
A posthumous (aren't they all?) award is probably in the offing.
