Google maps here work the best for this area to me. But I do not go that far out...

When I am even on a long trip, I bring Google map/directions with me. I am an addict when it comes to having a hard copy backup, regardless of the ease of touch screen navigation.

Things seem to have gotten better, but there was literally a 2 week stretch a while ago where the interstate was literally getting shutdown at least once a day due to retard drivers. Even if I75 gets shutdown, it can cause a mess on I71 as people try to find alternative routes.

I am honestly getting f'ing sick of cell phones as people are really starting to piss me off by not paying attention because they are so busy talking and texting while they drive. I think this is the biggest problem as they just recently lowered the speed limit on a stretch of I75 because so many accidents and deaths were taking place during that 2 week stretch. I drive that stretch twice a week and there is nothing dangerous about it, but I notice that nearly every other driver I see is busy talking or texting while they drive.

I can't see it has got any better even with new laws to limit cell phone use while driving.
The only option is raise the fines more for the morons. Or nail the damn cells permanently to the side of their skulls.

Different people are impaired differently by the use of a cell phone. I believe for people who are using a cell phone combined with significantly impaired driving, the fines should be raised significantly and thus raising the costs for those who are driving erratically. I believe the fine for texting while you drive should be very significant and the possibility of jail time should be considered. A fine might not cause some people to care, but the possibility of becoming someone's buttery cornhole for the night might give them a huge reason to stop texting.

I simply cannot believe that people text while they drive as things don't get much more dangerous than that. Cell phones are becoming such a significant hazard, it is mindboggling. Ohio doesn't have any laws against cell phone use or texting while you drive as far as i'm aware, but it must be considered when you consider how the probability of causing an accident increases when doing these things.

Well, we have laws the don't permit the use of cell phones in California and the law is not enforced. I personally use XGps on my iphone through Cydia. It doesn't take a 1GB of space like Navigon or TomTom applications. I have never texted while driving. In addition, before I even use the feature I plot my destination before I leave the house and pull over if I want to go to another location. That way I can just here what the voice prompt states when to turn and not. I love it.

I have heard about that in California, and suspect that is because the cops have much more important things to do with their time than go hunting for cell phone violations.

I believe that HUGE fines should be combined with cell phone violators who are also showing impaired driving. Not all people who use a cell phone are impaired in the same way as there are some who i've known that can actually drive normally. However it is the people who text that scare me the most.

Texting while driving is reckless driving, and most states do have laws against that. Mosts states have no law against reading the newspaper or baking a cake while driving; nevertheless, one may get cited on the site if sighted by the right LEO just the same-- and not remain wreckless.

Reminds me of Maria Shriver being caught with a cell phone to her ear.
Yeah, it's setting a bad example, but then I wonder if the one catching the photo was also driving while using a cell-cam. TMZ makes no mention how the video was taken, although it appears to be from a sidewalk.
