Look, Maw! . . . No Hands!


California politicians passed a new law that went into affect today. People rushed out to purchase hands-free equipment for their cell phones because this new law states that we can no longer hold a cell phone while driving. We can talk on it...just not hold it. The California politicians seem to think this will reduce distractions, therefore reduce auto accidents. I say, "Poopie dust!" It's not the holding of the cell phone that's a distraction to drivers, it's the conversation itself. This law isn't going to prevent the car in front of you from driving 30 miles an hour on the freeway because they're into their phone conversation. If a difference is to be made, take the phone away completely. Politicians are idiots.

And get this: truck drivers will not be cited if they're talking on their CB radios. Uh...let me think about this. Hello? Did I say, "politicians are idiots"?

if it keeps people from texting while driving im all for it.
people have become too dependant on their phones find a place to pull over if you must. two hands on the wheel eatong and drinking wish would be next.

I acutally worry that it will cause teen drivers to text more WHILE driving...holding their phones in their laps. That's SO much worse than being on the phone with your eyes actually ON the road instead of IN your lap. Thanks for your post, rhino :-)

Honestly, I just want to know who all of these people are talking to and what all do they have to say *all the time*. Perhaps, I'm way too anti-social to get the whole concept but cripes, just shut up already!

i agree, it is stupid. its been the law here in england for a few years now and i havnt heard one word about it working or not.
im aussuming that if it had made a difference then they would have been talking about how great it is all the time so my own conclusion is that this law is the poop!
