Cellphone Ban To Be Signed Today
A bill outlawing talking on a cellphone without a hands- free device, while driving, is expected to be signed into law today. I believe it becomes effective in January 2008.
This is one of those weird ones where I'm strongly opposed to it in principle, but am kinda glad to see it happen.
I don't like having yet another reason for people to be pulled over for doing nothing really wrong, at least in and of itself. At the same time I've nearly been hit, at least once, by someone obsessed with talking while driving, and that was in the Eureka Mall parking lot!
I'll also admit to being annoyed by people that think they're so important they need to be talking to someone every minute of the day. I thought it was bad up here. Down in San Francisco, it seems half the people have a cell phone to their ear at one time or another.
This is one where it's easy to point fingers. I have a cellphone in my truck- one of those old analog type bag phones. I don't use it while driving. In fact, I could probably count on one hand the number of times I use it in a year.
Wish more people used them like I do.
