    To sum up this novel above-Cellphones should be banned while driving, period. They should have the same laws as those in Arizona for DWI cases. 1st offense=hefty fine with points on your license - possible license suspension, 2nd offence=hefty fine AND 30 days in jail.
    I disagree. If distraction is the issue, then why put radios in the car? Your eyes come off the road when you fumble with the knobs, especially with non-steering controls. How about kids or any other passenger?
    "Daaaaaddddd, I dropped my glass of juice!!" "Moooommmmm, Billy leaked out of his diaper!!!"

    Printed maps to look at? banned.
    Looking out the window? banned.
    speedometer not on a HUD display? banned.
    Makeup in the car, or shaving? banned
    just last night... flat tire warning light on the dash? banned if the car cannot tell me "Right rear tire is flat" without having to look down.
    Heck, even rear view mirrors distract.

    Anything has a potential for distraction. Singling this out is absurd. having a law specific for this is a waste. If I was a cop, i'd stop alot of people for "careless" driving without needing this law passed.

    Wow. You probably shouldn't drive at all. You might have a passenger in your car speak to you or someone nearby could blow a horn. Maybe your car starts making a funny noise. You could wreck and kill everyone on the street. Talking on a cell with a hands free device is not going to be the biggest distraction for any driver. If it is, please step away from the car. The phone too, for that matter.

    I don't see what the problem with texting while stopped at a red light is. You're not moving.. As long as you see the light turn green and put down the phone when it does.

    quite hilarious.....most people texting at a light "get delayed" when it turns green. Personally, I like to see them texting and then when they look down I blow the horn and they take off and the light is still red Lesson to learn here....this is a learning moment for ALL.

    Texting is indeed a distraction. No matter what your perspective is. Talking on hands free or even on the phone though should be acceptable. No difference than other people in the car.

    I DO NOT text while driving. I DO take calls and use the phone itself or hands free. I ended up tinting my windows limo tint so I cannot be seen and singled out for a ticket. I hate being grouped in with people that cannot talk and drive. I can do it and others can to but some just cannot.

    But that helps protect them from the guy running the other red light due to texting...

    Like was said earlier are they going to ban everything from a car and make them dune buggies? No mirrors, no radio,etc.

    I like the people who fall asleep at a red light or are talking to their passenger or child and just cruise through the red light. Those are the people they need to go after. Like the Police have said it's hard to enforce the law because they can't see most people on their cell phones unless they are sitting at a red light next to them.

    dune buggies won't work. the dust that gets kicked up will cause you to squint or go blind for a moment. We'd need to ban dust and dirt in the air when we are driving too.
