Should cell phone use be illegal while driving?
In the District of Columbia, where I spend too much time, cell phone use while driving is now illegal, and of course the law is completely ignored. I'm in favor of the law, and I obey it, but I have to admit there's a wide range of other activities that are just as dangerous, e.g. eating, reading, applying makeup, fiddling with the CD changer, etc, all of which we see all the time.
But the mix of inattentive talkers and aggressive drivers on our roads is truly volatile.
There is scarcely anything in the world that some man cannot make a little worse, and sell a little more cheaply. The person who buys on price alone is this man's lawful prey. --John Ruskin
