Re: Another Cell Phone Rant


Thats a great pic! Every day im cruisin around in the company van, and i see morons yakkin away on their phones, and swaying in the lanes, or just not paying attention to traffic lights and other cars, etc.
Nj is finally trying to push making it illegal to use one while driving, which IMO is a great idea! Scattered towns around the state have done this already, but i really hope it goes state-wide. Man, ive almost been in a few accidents due to these things! (And no, i dont own one, either!)

Great sign, instead of each state making this the law as they eventually will the fed's ought to pish it so that it becomes the law every were like they did with seat belts.

I gotta disagree...

I hate morons talking on cell phones, too [img]images/graemlins/mad.gif[/img], but making 'em use the hands-free WON'T make 'em pay attention to what they're doing, [img]images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img] any more than strapping 'em in to their little tin-foil econoboxes [img]images/graemlins/blush.gif[/img] will save their lives when they plow into the back of one of our 4WDs. [img]images/graemlins/shocked.gif[/img] [img]images/graemlins/crazy.gif[/img] It's just more legislation, more politics, more BS, more money wasted, & more $#!T for cops to waste time on when they COULD be driving around looking for Muslim male extremist mostly between the ages of 18 & 45.

Re: cellphones bad!

Actually, nj wants to make em illegal if youre moving, regardless of that hand-free crap. The fact still remains that youre on the phone, doesnt matter if youre holding it next to your head or not.

Re: cellphones bad!

try driving a manual trans straight truck in heavy traffic on a 4 lane narrow road through downtown and talk on a radio and a cell phone at the same time looking for an adress [img]images/graemlins/shocked.gif[/img] that's when i said enough and dropped all but driving.
yeah i agree with the cell phone thing, ive seen people weaving through two lanes on an interstate constanly, i thought they were drunk, but when i pulld up they were on a cell phone, go figure. some can handle it and drive normal, but those who can't believe they can. when i do it i drive like an old woman, no lane changes, keep DISTANCE and no road rage, hang up and its every man for himself.
