Re: Other distractions are DIFFERENT
My bluetooth headset is always in the same place. The button is always in the same place. My phone is attached to a cradle. I use it as GPS as well.
None of your arguments give you or anyone else the authority to deny my right to use my phone in my car.
And let's not forget that your arguments don't include anything about having to deal with 2-3 kids in an SUV all screaming, crying, watching dvds, playing video games, and talking/texting on their own phones. There's not a cell phone on any network that will provide more of a distraction than that.
The best option is to increase the penalty if an accident or reckless driving are a result of cell phone usage. However, to be fair, any such legislation should also include a stiffer penalty for driving while eating, talking to your kids, reading a map... etc. Oh and police would need to be banned from using cell phones/ cb radios/ laptops while in their cars.
Banning me from using my phone is unconstitutional.
More government is the wrong answer every single time.
