"I Was Just Reaching to Pick Up My Phone!"

Why do so many negligent drivers give the excuse that they "were just reaching over to pick up their cell phone" after they have caused a tragic accident? Do negligent drivers feel this is a more acceptable or less blame-worthy response to give the Police than I was sending a text message or trying to make a call? 

Dramatic Increase in Women Being Arrested for Drunk Driving

Federal Bureau of Investigation (F.B.I.) statistics show a twenty-one percent (21%) increase in Driving Under the Influence (DUI) arrests among women during the nine year period between 2003 and 2012. Annual arrests among women increased from 174,000 to 650,000 nationwide. Interestingly, annual arrest among men decreased by nearly 17 percent during this same time period (780,000 down to 650,000 nationwide). Social science experts speculate that the increase in arrests of women may be due to more women being in the workforce so more miles are being driven by women and more driving occurs at night when they are more likely to be arrested for drunken driving. Additionally, experts believe that it has become more socially acceptable than it used to be for women to drink in public, especially among young women. Finally, many states have eliminated first offender diversion programs, so more women are being pushed into the criminal justice system without an ability to by-pass it.
