Who knew Cell Phones could be oh so controversial. It’s an everyday occurance now to see them mentioned in the news because another city has banned them in cars. But there is more it appears, and the cell phone crackdown continues. First, the latest and greatest in the cell phone driving bans……
New Hampshire seems to feel that it’s worse to use a cell while driving that a case of beer, according to a study they did.
“When controlling for driving difficulty and time on task, cell-phone drivers exhibited greater impairment than intoxicated drivers,â€ the study states.”
A news flash now for all of you that just love to hang around in court rooms and be close to the “process”, don’t bring your cell phones. Because if they ring, Judge Judy (and even non-celebrity judges) can confiscate your handset. Also, this is in Dubai. 🙂
“A mobile phone that rings violates the court order and is punishable by the Civil Procedure Law.”
I can’t figure out why this law hasn’t been passed down before all the cell phone driving ones, but New Jersey is leading the “no texting while driving” charge. Is it just me, or is texting way more distracting anyway?
“It’s different than talking on a cell phone. When you’re on the phone, at least you’re able to keep looking down the road,” he said. “I’ve seen people driving with their knees and texting.”
And in our final, “driving and talking” crackdown, there is a bill that is being proposed in Louisiana currently that would restrict people from talking on their phones while driving, but just in school zones.
Representative A-G Crowe filed House Bill 99 to make it a traffic offense for a driver to use a cell phone “during posted hours” in school zones.
The bill would allow exceptions for calling police, firefighters, emergency medical technicians or other emergency personnel; or if the driver parks the vehicle.
