I have nearly gotten in dozens of car accidents with ignorant assholes and fangirls that cant put their damn phone down. This includes a near head on collision that could have killed me. When I see people driving and using their phone, even if I am a pedestrian, I give them crap, I dont care if they confront me, I will not be victimized by an individual who is placing a call or text.

Business? Trucker? I dont care, and it doesnt matter. Your business is not worth ANY life. Your truck shipment is not worth ANY life. Stop being so ignorant and so full of yourself that anybody who tells you to get off the damn phone and drive is a mofo? Get over yourself!

Anybody who continues to text / talk on their cell phone after this law is passed...

And do you confront the gang banger with the megabillion watt amp playing music loud enough to support a super bowl crowd? Someone having a full course meal while driving, some noodnick bimbo applying eye liner and blow drying her hair, some tool reading a newspaper while driving. If you do, I am 100% behind you.

In Kingston, Ontario, there are no gang bangers with megabillion watt amps. That is kind of a tough call there becuase when you deal with people like that your life is on the line. I really dont know if that was the case. Sad

You hate America? I am sorry, but calling and driving is no where near a 9/11 violation.

yeah, hating America is a bit extreme. Anybody that says they've never made or recieved a call or sent or recieved a text while driving is lying. Im not saying its ok to do it, all im saying is that EVERYONE has done it on occasion. Including the police officers that are supposed to enforce this.

Police are legally entitled to do that, as it is considered "Necessary" , and yes, that is a legal defence. Necessity.

And hence the apathy on such laws, they got 10's of thousands of communicative equipment and flaunt the use of their mobiles because they can, and then many (not all) the police come down on the general public for the same use.

Funny. Because I would say that calling for this kind of ban is against the US Constitution. And anyone calling for this kind of ban hates America and everything she stands for. Freedom of choice is paramount to what makes this country great. Your argument doesn't make sense because a national ban will not save lives. Eating and driving is still the number 1 reason for auto accidents. I'm still not sure why a Canadian's opinion on American law matters though.
