I envision future cellphones to "shut off" certain capabilities upon entering a newer car.
Or cars that have the ability to turn off the cell phones capabilities...vice versa.
Honestly though, far too many people are distracted when driving and I can't just blame texting or calling either. I see people put on makeup, I see
people eating, or changing the radio stations. It is all a giant risk once you take your eyes off the road. But for Gods sake put your phone down!
There is no need to be in constant communication during operation of a 3-4000lb automobile. That is why they invented hands free communication, and
even that is distracting. Common sense will tell even the dumbest person it's a bad idea. But they still do it without remorse.
I look at it like every dumb new law proposed by dumb new gov't. Apparently the people can't decide what is good for them or not, so the gov't thinks
they have to. Which in this case is the reason behind this ridiculous proposal. They have to shift the blame somewhere to increase revenue so people
sitting at home get fined. That is besides the fact that people don't have enough common sense to figure texting while driving is dangerous. Among a
plethora of other things...
Blame the people who text the drivers. Wow.
Good one, dear gov't...good one.
