Banning Phones From Cars Entirely
from the get-rid-of-'em-and-throw-people-in-jail dept
So, I didn’t post anything about the NY law to ban cell phones in cars because I didn’t think it was that big of a deal (though, I’ll have to remember to take my headset with me next time I’m in NY). However, the guy who created the bill is now pushing for a more stringent bill that would ban even hands free kits in cars. Also, instead of a $100 fine for yakking and driving, he wants to offense to be the same as DWI. Of course, I still don’t see how talking to someone using a hands free kit is any different than talking to a passenger in the car. Is he going to ban passenger cars next?
