I think that is the problem right there. Everything is all about ME these days. Who cares about the rest of the people on the road.
My 2 cellphone stories. Quite a few years ago I'm trying to merge onto the local freeway. The slow lane is filled w/ tractor trailers, but I get in. Then when I move to the middle lane, it's going about 10 mph slower than the RH & LH lanes. The LH passing lane is streaming by me for a couple of minutes before I can get out & start to move. Well the "leader" of the slow lane was some guy in a white shirt (w/ a passenger) yakking on a cell phone. I passed them while laying on the horn. After passing them & moving back into the middle lane in front of them, then tapped the side of my head as to say, "Use your head".
Sometime after that my brother almost rear ended a slow moving pickup in Toronto. As he passed them he saw the guy was on a cellphone. Well brother saw that he could slow down (no traffic) & let the guy catch up to him. Well I guess my brother honked the horn & started to yell (inside the cab of his truck). Brother said the guy hung up pretty quick. He didn't say what he said, but obviously the slow poke could lip read.
