I'm so embarrased it doesn't register on a meter, it will peg out.
It was bound to happen, though I had been altering my texting habits in the car lately.
Pulled over to send out a long text to my boss, and got an answer.
Wanted to just send ok, or something like that, and it happened.
I drifted just a bit right, and by bad timing, I went by someones driveway who the owners had placed a concrete brick "curb" to it, which kinda extended out partway into the shoulder.
Saw it at last minute but too late.
Blew both right side tires. Rims ok, though nicked slightly.
$300 later (towing was $3, had AAA) I'm ok.
So yes, I'm embarrased, especially being a pilot and all, safety first, etc ...
If there wasn't the "curb" stuff I would have been fine I suppose, until I got nailed by something else, or worse yet if I drifted left slightly, no one else was around. I typically had done this while stopped, or on straight shots with 1500 - 2000 ft before another vehicle.
But no longer, all texts will be done with no movement. And it seems a law is coming that way anyway.
SO .... just a warning, if it can happen to me, it CAN and likely WILL happen to YOU if you persist in doing it whilst moving.
