For anyone not interested in reading all this, i boldedthe main points/questions.
If there is anyone in this world that hates generalizations, its me. I hate it that people have determined that NO ONE in this vastly enormous and multi-talented world can possibly use the phone and drive at the same time. I think that it is bullshit in its most basic form, because I very well CAN drive and talk at the same time, its not difficult and just takes prioritizing what is more important, the conversation or your life... just like I can walk and talk I can drive and talk and not get into a horrific idiotic accident, as I am sure a lot of other people both on and off this site can also do.
Now the question is, do you think its right for the government of the state to ban cellphone use while driving for non-commercial vehicles?
I am sick and tired of almost getting run over, crashed into, cut off, or driving intensely defensively to avoid incredibly aggressive drivers, all due to cellphone usage... dont even get me started on texting.
These people constantly slow down, crash, cause traffic, or just dont move because they are THAT distracted... now comes the second question of discussion.
Although these people arent a danger to me because I pay very close attention on the road and I drive VERY defensively, I am willing to give up my privilege of being able to talk on the phone in my car to STOP these morons from making my driving experience into a nightmare.
Now although I am aware that its not SO bad in every state as bad as it is in Miami or NY or what not, but my second question is for those who are able to multitask on a motor-skill level:
Would you give up your ability to do that which others cant, to avoid either driving with irresponsible creatures or to prevent said subjects from crashing into others and causing problems?
I use to put up a fight when confronted with this situation, but from everything I've experienced, I am more than willing to give up using my cellphone if it means that these time-wasting, accident causing people will stop ruining the driving experience >_<
