LOL. It's funny you mention kid wrecking cars. About 15 minutes ago I was talking to a co-worker who mentioned that his 17 year old daughter totaled his Jeep. She got a text message on her cell phone, bent over to check the text and lost control of the Jeep. She luckily was not hurt, but she totaled the Jeep. Cell phones should be kept off when driving if the driver does not have the will power to ignore an incoming call or text.
Heck, we mandate seat belts being in cars and mandate using them
Let's make all cars with a white noise type function that stops cell phones from inside the car while the engine is on and allows GPS to function.
Even hands free is just not a very good idea, screw it let's go for it. Passengers on the phone is a pain in the butt too. If we can make em stop working while folks are walking then let's do that too, and at the mall sitting on benches yelling at themselves, and on train, my God what morons.
cell phones in general really release my inner curmudgeon
