Lawrence, Kansas Says To Hell With Any Mobile Phone Use By Drivers
from the none-of-that-now dept
Following a bunch of studies that have suggested a hands-free kit impacts driving just as much as holding a phone to your ear, it looks like Lawrence, Kansas may be the first city to seriously look at banning all driving-while-yakking, whether hands-free or not. Of course, as we’ve discussed previously, most people seem to ignore such bans anyway, while there are plenty of other driving distractions out there as well. This isn’t to say that people should chat on their phones while driving — but just that we already have laws against reckless driving. Instead of trying to ban every possible distraction, why not focus on simply going after the bad drivers?
