Spelling and grammar ignored by CBC's writers

I can kind of overlook the extra word the (from "Law banning phone use ignored by many B.C. drivers" on CBC News online on August 24, 2011), but

writing will instead of while? That is a ridiculous error for a professional writer to make. Doesn't anyone at CBC proofread the articles before they're posted?

I didn't know it was legal to drive hands-free. I don't want to even think about what the driver is steering with.

Knees. Let's just go with knees. That sentence in the article has been updated to be more clear, in addition to fixing the will/while thing.
