I don’t understand why people eschew the earpiece or Star Trek Bluetooth headphone in favor of holding their palm to their ear.

Cell phone teen driverStudies have apparently shown that my earpiece gives me no real safety advantage over “palming it”, but it’s so obvious to the other drivers when you are holding the cell when you’re supposed to be driving?

Apparently if the Republicans have their way, they will defeat this bill. Pro-life? I also don’t understand the party’s affair with big tobacco companies on a national level, other than to suggest big business influence/corruption issues.

Ban cell phone in the hand while driving? A no-brainer.
