    The US government has no authority to pass such a law. That would make passage illegal and if someone were to attempt to enforce such a law, they would be outlaws.

    Y'all know what happens to outlaws, don't you.

    It's best not to go there, it would get ugly quickly.

    Extremist nonsense.

    All the federal government has to do is pass a law which ties federal highway funding to a cellphone ban. How do you think the 55 MPH speed limit lasted so long?

    So if we can't control absolutely everything that dsitracts drivers, we shouldn't try to control any. Is that your point?

    So are we to assume all truck drivers that use CB radios to communicate will have to give their CB radios up too? I am totally against texting while driving but blue tooth, or any hands free device should be allowed.

    Good idea! Don't control anything at ALL for that matter. Then we will know what it is like to live in the Middle East

    No, not my point, but since you bring it up - what do they control now, besides alcohol consumption and seatbelts?

    My point was more to bring up the question, where do we draw the line? It's an awfully fuzzy/gray line...

    I don't see a need for a federal ban because many of the states already have laws on the books that ban this. It should be a states' rights issue.

    My point was not to support doing nothing, but to be reasonable. Truckers have been using radios for years, way before cell phones and I do not think they have caused a rash of accidents. Most are very good drivers and are adults. I believe texting while driving is very dangerous and would support a law to outlaw this dangerous activity. I do not support any Federal law and would leave it up to each state. Like CB radios, cell phones should be allowed with hands free features activated. Again this would be up to each state to decide.

    Yes, the Federal government is good at blackmailing the states and you are sadly correct in your assumption.
