Which choice do you support, and why?
Freedom with Hands free method. It's safe without being overly intrusive. There have been a few times when I needed to make an emergency call from my phone while driving, and it's not always an option to pull over.
I vote for total freedom, with the condition that those who get into accidents while on the phone be subjected to additional points and fines. I wouldn't have a problem with the hands free rule, however.
If I have to choose one, I'll say hands-free method.. There are some people out there that can drive and talk at the same time, without holding up traffic, or weaving all over the place.. Of course, those are the people with enough common sense to not yap on the phone in bad weather, or difficult traffic situations...
Hands-free, so I can use my hands for checking email on my Blackberry, eat my jumbo fries, and take a few swigs on my brewski. And of course, in case another driver deserves a friendly hand gesture.
Why do y'all think Hands-Free devices are somehow safer?
I bet y'all think 'speed kills' too!
I don't think that's it.. But you've got to admit, there ARE some people that have no business being behind the wheel, much less ON a phone while they're driving poorly to begin with.
I like Clay's idea that people be fined extra monies if they were found on a cell phone, and in an accident.
I thought you were about personal driving responsibility?
It's 'being on the phone' that is the problem....NOT holding something to one's ear.
But do you argue that no one can be on the phone and successfully drive? What about an empty road?
