A message to all the law makers of banning Cell phones while driving.

First of all, making it illegal to use a cell phone while driving makes no sense.  Yes, people are distracted while using them, but that what the "careless driving" law is all about.  People are distracted for many reasons.   Changing radio channels, yelling at the kids in the back seat, drooping a lit cigarette on your lap, putting make up on, shaving and the list goes on and on.  I'm just glad they didn't pass a law that we couldn't use a laptop computer while driving.   Or will this be next?  Again, that's what "careless driving" is all about.  Or are they just going to pass more laws?

They did however, let people continue to use a cell phone if you use a hands free system.  I'm sure it's less distracting to hear your phone ring, plug in the hands free system (I don't know about you, but mine takes 2 hands to plug the device in.  One to hold the phone, the other to insert the cable), then clip the wire to your shirt so you don't pull the ear piece out and then put the ear piece in your ear.   Oh yea, you still have to hit the talk button or dial the phone.  Yea, that's less distracting!  In a way the law does help some......I just got back from the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas and they came out with new cell phones.  You need the hands free part to operate the video part of the phone!  I guess they'll just have to add another law on the books!
