I drove a taxi in the 60s, then had a "real" job for 50 years, rode motorcycles for over 50 years, drove taxis again for ten years because the pension was totally inadequate financially. The technological burden imposed on taxi drivers today is unbelievable. in the past it was two way radio voice, now it is 3G video + GPS and onscreen text. So please, if your multitasking skills are inadequate, PLEASE refrain. Did you know that talking or texting at the time of being involved an accident cancels your comprhensive insurance pollicy?
Life is mostly froth and bubble, but two things stand like stone. Kindness in anothers trouble, and .courage in your own. Annon.

It will be very dangerous when driving if drivers are allowed to text and talk on cellphones.

I text with one thumb while driving with one hand and looking now and then at the road in front with one remaining good eye.

Texting, no. But talking, yes. What if your crazy boss is calling you while you are on the road? Or what about some sudden family emergency?
Put out your right arm, hold back your left arm... <(=^.^=);

Easy.  You pull over to the side of the road and talk, instead of stopping in the middle of the raod like most Chinese drivers.

Not easy to pull over all the time.

Millions of hand free gadgets for mobiles are made in China.

There are also drivers in China who use it.

I happen to know both of them...
