    If they passed a "no cell phone usage of any kind while driving" law, I'd be fine with it. Would you?

    Yes.

    I probably would break that rule from time to time, but I rarely use the phone in the car.

    You're probably one of those assholes huh? Don't worry that comment was pure hyperbole. I wouldn't actually shoot anyone for talking on the cell phone while driving. I'd shoot out a tire instead. :eusa_whistle:

    Another R.E.T - Revenue enhancement technique.

    Next they will outlaw conversing with passengers and listening to talk radio.

    Silly comment, Missourian, by you. You don't have "rights" here that outweight the public safety. Talking on the phone is as dangerous as driving under the influence. Texting while driving is supposed to be far more dangerous, and every teen who drives that I have talked to admits they text while driving.

    Sure, criminalize the behavior.

    Absolutely. Which part of the brain is engaged in driving when both eyes and one hand are concentrated on something else?
