I see this type of legislation as little more than pandering: make the sheeple think the politicians are doing "good stuff".|
Many (most? all?) states already have laws on the books for reckless and/or inattentive driving which cover the actual problem here. Because of this, I don't see any more laws in this arena being necessary. Just enforce the freaking existing laws!!!!
Let's face it, there are probably zillions of laws that could be written, all of which would serve the same purpose as the proposed cell phone law - where does it end? What about a law prohibiting juggling chainsaws while driving, and another one for driving while blindfolded, and another one for cutting one's toenails while driving, and another one for . . . etc., etc., etc.?
Disclosure: By personal choice, I don't even have a cell phone.
