This Idea Needs to be Pile Drived!

Any politician who has a fundraiser at a professional “wrestling” event is alright in our book.

But the separate legislation proposed by Reps.’ Joe “Nature Boy Smith” (R) and Talibdin “Who Stole My Baking Soda” El-Amin (D) goes a bit too far.

In another example of bi-partisanship, (see below) these fine public servants want to ban cell phone use in automobiles unless you’re using a hands free device.

Admittedly, I’ve been distracted and have almost caused an accident by my cellphone use, but I think this proposal is a little too much big brother for me. I’m still uncomfortable with the mandatory seat belt laws.

    “I’ve been distracted and have almost caused an accident by my cellphone use, but I think this proposal is a little too much big brother for me.”

    Hands free should be mandatory. -When people hold a phone up to their ear, they seem to unconciously make driving their second priority. Hands free devices seem to prevent this from happening.

    Mandating hands free operation would lead to safer roads.
