Are you some kind of crazed libertarian wacko or something?

Better watch it or you will be deemed out of the mainstream of political thought or some other horrible fate.

Default Re: Cell phones

Do the laws allow hands-free usage? I know some progress has been made, and California's new law against hand-held usage goes into effect this year, but I just don't expect it to make a lot of difference. I've read studies that state hands-free is no less dangerous than hand-held, and how do you stop someone from doing that?



Some individuals will still drive drunk, talk on their cell phones while driving, and ride motorcycles in a dangerous fashion - I'm just trying to accept it without being pissed-off all the time, because things aren't going to get better.

I live in Connecticut, and that 'driving-while-talking-on-your-cellphone' law is either not taken seriously or not enforced - people have that damn thing pressed to their face in what seems like record numbers. Especially while just pulling out of a busy shopping center onto a busy road.

He already rides a motorcycle, it's too late for that.
