If you aren't a good enough driver to talk on the phone while driving you shouldn't do it.
Those of us who are would appreciate you leaving off making all your silly laws to prevent it.
Cell phones are a major time saver.

Texting is not the same as talking btw.

UD, don't forget that something like 85% of drivers are better than average drivers, so how is it determined that one is a good enough driver to talk while driving? A hundred yard test?

"UD, don't forget that something like 85% of drivers are better than average drivers"

I'm trying to get my head around that one.
It's kind of like saying 85% of people are smarter than average isn't it?
Maybe it's just the new math - and I'm in a lower bracket when it comes to that.

That is how people answered the questionnaire. 85% percent said that they were above average, so it would translate that even though statistics show that phones are a distraction, just one of many that leads to higher accident rates, most individuals would be confident that they would not be distracted. Same concept as seat belts, except that lack of wearing a seat belt rarely hurts anyone else.
