While not disputing that banning cel phones while driving is a good idea especially in cities where every third driver got their license via bribes there are some aspects that confuse me. Most have probably been posted here, like women putting on makeup while driving, reading while driving. Nothing seems to be done about these until after they cause an accident. Then there are some that want a ban on changing CDs, talking and eating. I just don't see how all this is going to be enforceable since cops can't even keep drunks with suspended licenses from driving. Tourists looking at the scenery are just as much a danger on the road or more than a local talking on the phone.
Does anyone know for sure if the ban also covers VHF radios in trucks? WE have 11 of them on the road and while I know they can be converted it is expensive and I have never heard of a trucker causing an accident by talking on the radio. Most of ours are not programed for talk around frequencies but are industrial road use and private channels.
