I recently read a report that 87% of all drivers think they are above average or excellent drivers. Now in this thread I read that there should be no ban on cell phone use because all of those above average drivers can compensate for their cell phone use by turning up their above-averageness. In other words, people are deluding themselves into thinking that they are great drivers who can compensate for their cell phone use by amping up their delusions. That's very safe for all of us, I'm sure. If I was a religious man, I'd pray to the Good Lord for protection from all of those extra-super-duper "above average" drivers and their cell phones. But I'm not, so I'll happily work with my fellow citizens to support sensible laws. So, yes, I support the proposed ban and further support making it the law in all 50 states. That way otherwise law-abiding citizens can't say "well it isn't the law in every state so it can't be that important!"  I can't find the study I was recalling, but here is an example where the number comes in at 93% The myth of the above-average driver - Sep. 22, 2011 If you google "driving" and "the lake wobegon effect" you will find plenty more.  Not that I blame them. Driving is the number one cause of death among people from age 1 up until 55 or so, when a lot of diseases kick in (mainly caused by lack of exercise, I suppose). It is the most dangerous thing most of you will do today. And we live in a society where driving is considered nearly mandatory. No wonder people are deluded about it.
