I'm torn on this whole thing. On one hand, I absolutely loathe big government and nanny state laws such as helmet and seatbelt laws, smoking bans, the War on Drugs, etc. because whether or not I obey those laws, no one else is hurt by what i do. On the other hand, too often, when a person uses a phone while driving, they are distracted by it and become a moving hazard. Two years ago, my friend and I were almost sideswiped by some dame who was texting while driving and was slowly veering into our lane. She realized what was going on and compensated in time, but I've never forgotten that.
