With all the hub-bub about driving while texting, or even just plain talking on your cell phone, why is the show Cash Cab (http://dsc.discovery.com/fansites/cashcab/cashcab.html) still on the air? Hosting a game show is far more distracting for the driver than texting/talking on a phone.

Just another example of the mighty dollar trumping safety?

I personally like the show (as any trivia buff would), but this is kinda ridiculous, especially driving around in New York.

"In front of you!!"
"Oooo sorry that's not correcSMASH!!

Edit: I just watched the YT vid, why didn't they drive her to the destination? You only give free rides to contestants and not to a crying woman?

Yeah, it doesn't have Louie Anderson as the host so I'm not surprised you don't like it.

Depends if you think he should be staked to a rock for all eternity getting his liver pecked out by buzzards or not.

We have a french version of that show in Montreal. It is awesome, especially when the Haitians get picked up - they scream and bounce like mad, compared to the stoic french who take it way too serious.

Lemme findit. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0OGyI2L_K3w

The screaming and bouncing is edited out, he actually pulls over to collect himself after they win, complaining about the level of noise. Back issues are not availible.
