Cell Phones While Driving

| | Comments (0)
The news said tonight that using a cell phone is as dangerous as driving while drunk.

Except, um, no, it's not.

There is absolutely no difference between talking on a phone, talking on a hands-free headset, and talking to an actual, you know, LIVE PERSON IN YOUR CAR.

Washington just passed a law making it illegal to talk on a cell phone. No word yet on whether listening to music or talking to a passenger will remain legal. (Hm ... now that I think about it ... the Democrats in WA who hate local talk radio maybe would want to ban the use of radios in cars. Except they would probably only ban conservative radio, on the grounds that it tends to contribute more to road rage than NPR does.)
