    Re: Study: No Evidence Cell Phone Bans Reduce Crashes

    Honestly, that was an awful article. I couldn't find a link to the study. It says the report says it doesnt work and the authors say we should hold off on implementing new bans. Then at the end it says, all states should implement no texting while driving laws. WHAT?! I don't get the logic in that. So I think more people would like to have a say in this so...

    RESURRECTING the thread. GO!

    I don't understand how any woman does that. As a lady myself I don't even apply chapstick while driving. You hit one pot-hole and all of a sudden your cornea is getting a nice coating of lip wax.

    my personal policy is that i answer the phone if i'm driving, but i do not read or answer texts, and i generally don't initiate calls.

    my guess is that newer cars will become more and more mobile-friendly and eventually the texting thing will be handled by speech based commands via vehicle bluetooth. i wouldn't be surprised to learn that some vehicles already have this capability.

    My boyfriend's car can do voice-to-text and will read his text messages to him. Essentially, with the exception of pushing the "command" button, he's 100% hands free if he wants to be.

    Too bad people need someone else to tell them what is right or wrong, safe or unsafe.

    Hope that study helps you in your quest for the truth.

    Btw the labels on plastic bags that tell you there is a great risk of suffocation if you place that bag over your head are there because some of you have no common sense at all.

    I had to put the bag over my head to read the text 'cause they put it on backwards!
