Hee hee hee!
That chick talking on the phone, changing the radio station, adjusting the fan, yelling at her kids and reaching for the caffeine source in early morning traffic?? That'd be me. And I like to think I'm rather clever at it too...course, someday, a bad accident will probably prove me wrong. But I'm sayin', I haven't had an accident or even a traffic ticket in years....so I think I'm doing all right.
Besides which, does taking the phone away do so much? Especially if you can still use it with a speaker or a hands free device. You can still be fiddling with it to change ringers or answer the other line or dial a number or whatever. Take away the phone, and you still have makeup, drinks, seatbelts, radio knobs, dvds, hand signals, road rage, etc distracting drivers everywhere.
Bottom line is, I don't care if the ban talking on cell phones without a hands free device. I have speaker phone. I just don't think it's going to make that big a difference.
