Cell Phones while driving

Louisiana safety official wants a ban on drivers using hand-held cell phones but believes a state law is unlikely to achieve it.

Question

Are you asking should it be made a crime?

Should it be done? Probably not.

Should it be a crime to do? Definitely not.

Ban various

Why would they have to do that? Just because those other things are distracting doesn't mean they would have to be banned, as well.

Thats the whole point...the other things are no more/less distractin than talkin on a cellphone..ya might fumble that cigarette or drink into your lap...ya might altogether miss your piehole with that cheeburger and end up crammin it into your nostrils...who knows what calamity might befall ya...if ya cant drive and talk on the cellphone at the same time safely then ya probably shouldnt be walkin and chewin gum at the same time, either.

Well I voted! I think driving while gabbing on the cell phone is good for you!!

(I just don't want to see yet another liberty made illegal I guess)

I personally believe that the vehicle is an extension of the home.
For many of us we spend hours in transit and communication is imperitive to our way of life.If we do away with cell phones in vehicles then we may as well do away with car stereos and portable devices such as dvd and game players as well.
Perhaps there is a need to regulate mobile electronics in this day and age, perhaps they should make it the responsibilty of the Department of Motor Vehicles to update State licensing criteria to a format suiting the modern needs and educating drivers on safety issues.

educating drivers on safety

Been trying that for years. Face it some people can not drive with or with out there phone or music or food or smokes or little Johnny rotten in the back seat or just getting old and reflexes are just not what they have been in the past. Defensive driving is the best way to travel and don't drink and drive.
With the number of cars on the road increasing so have the number of bad drivers too.
