    Cell phone usage in automobiles continues openly in spite of legislation. People walk through stores talking loudly as if they are in a private phone booth. Cell phones are used openly in restaurants. And, common courtesy with cell phone usage is out the window!

    Oregon just passed a new law about texting as you are driving. Cops can't be everywhere.


    I don't believe the problem to be cell phones. It is just a matter of basic manners.

    Unlikely.

    My comment is directed at you apparently wanting to legislate talking on a cell phone even outside of an automobile.

    They're busy chasing down poor saps that they might be able to shake down for a for DUI.

    Cell phone tickets are chicken feed.

    People do not multi-task as well as they think they do. Listen to these cell phone conversations, most are junk/gossip calls. I'd like to see cell phones out of business. You sound as if you are going to lose a buck if things go "safety first."

    Well, then I am not alone because there are 20,200,000 listings in Google under "Anti-Cell Phone." Check for yourself, here is the link. Google
