More comments from people here who dont have kids old enough to drive, they will get thier taste of teenagers someday.this is funny Mark a few years ago I did a post on this me and my brother put a device in my neices car that did the same thing when she started driving and I got a bunch of shit on here for bad parenting. It was said if you cant trust them to not text and drive then they dont need to be driving yet !
Said NY law? I drive otr and have not yet seem this and I go through NY a good bet. If it's true? What about hands free devices?Brother-in-law was an OTR driver. He said in NY it is illegal to use your phone while driving. State patrol has a device that picks up and locates call source. $1000 fine for truckers to be paid on the spot. He said you could drive 80mph out there, but don't use your phone. Illegal cell use makes more revenue than speeding tickets.
BTW If you want to see how dangerous texting is go to a local college campus. I can't tell you how many collisions with other people and solid objects I've witnessed. It is funny to watch until you realize they text while driving too.
Too bad they don't compile those stats. I bet it would be in the millions.
We survived not being able to easily reach our loved ones. That's not a time I care to revisit.I just wonder how the world survied up to now with out cell phones
Cell phones are optional. You needn't purchase one if you prefer not to be contacted.i say ban them all ... i dont wanna be that conected
NAILED IT!Here's my take on all this, for whats it it's worth.
Eventually enough deaths or a horrific tragedy, a school bus, a car through a crowd, soccer mom and her kids killed due to texting or cell phone use will grab the nations attention. The media will act like it's a new found issue, people will demand action. Politicians will be forced to do something which they probably won't. The fight will turn to which party can make the other look less caring, ultimately they'll just kick it down the road. The cell industry will offer blocking technology as an option for parents. Insurance companies will give discount for installing it or maybe even require it. The judicial system will require blocker as part of the punishment for be caught texting or talking. For new drivers and under 18-21 will be required as part to have blockers as part of driving privilege's.
so you think when some idoit texting and kill them that phone gonna talk to the dead ..We survived not being able to easily reach our loved ones. That's not a time I care to revisit.
