Wait... they should be allowed to use them in CT cuz I don't like CT and like the idea of them plowing into each other.

Not sure if anyone else saw this episode of myth busters. They tested 2 people talking on cell phones and then those same 2 people having drinks after which they had to complete a road course set up by some traffic safety police. They actually drove better while being drunk then they did on the phones. Does it really hurt to just wear an ear piece or wait to talk to someone after you have stopped? What did we ever do before cell phones lol!


Waiting until your out of the car would be best. If you're talking on an earpiece, your hands may be on the wheel, but your mind is off in the conversation.

I think a phone conversation is possibly more distracting than talking to someone in the car with you. (Unless you're one of those fools who has to look at the person you're talking to!) Although nothing beats shutting up and concentrating on the road ahead.

I guess we better make it illegal to conversate at all while driving. My God how did we ever make it this far?

All the reasons sound so logical and good but at the core it's really just a dislike or annoyance for people that cant put their cell phones down. I agree it is kind of weird and in an unexplaianable way irritating to hear others on the phone in public. But it does'nt mean it should be made an illegal activity.

Vandy made a good point earlier about the proliferation of unnecessary legislation.

When we wake up one day to the Socialist States of America, I guess nobody will care or maybe they will all be out joining in the parade to celebrate.

Anyways, this was intended only as a lighthearted "rant" did not mean to get so serious.

Let's not take this too far. Remember what happened to that guy in Altered States.
Or do we have to ban peyote too?
