Earlier today, and last week, Techdirt has been looking at recommendations from the National Transportation Safety Board to reduce the use of cell phones while driving. Now, two congresspeople are preparing to introduce legislation to curb the use of cell phones while driving on a national level. I don't like this. No great argument against it, I just want to be able to use my phone as I drive. If some people can shave, why can't I talk? At least phones can do some good: I've never seen a shaver make a 911 call to help someone in distress.
