Proposed Nationwide Cell Phone Ban

Reuters -- in an effort to combat distracted driving, US transportation Secretary Ray LaHood is calling for a federal law that would ban ALL CELL PHONE USE WHILE DRIVING ANY TYPE OF A VEHICLE ON ANY ROAD IN THE COUNTRY."

LaHood calling this a "national epidemic" at a summit in San Antonio Texas commenting that we need tough federal legislation to deal with this problem.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration estimates that 3000 fatal traffic accidents nationwide last year were the result of distracted driving and that using a cell phone while driving reduces the reaction time to the same amount of having a blood-alcohol concentration of .08%.

just like the recent proposed farm bill which would put strict limits on the family farm by increasing the child labor laws to the point that even using any type of power device such as a screwdriver could be illegal and the child would have to attend 90 hours of government training was quickly put on hold due to the public outcry within DAYS OF THE ANNOUNCEMENT is what we need to do in this particular case.

National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) calls on a ban for all PERSONAL ELECTRONIC DEVICES (PED)while driving. This would include ANY use of a cell phone, GPS, I Pad, or any other electronic device that was not installed at the factory.


more and more people are finding out that we actually have a voice and can make a difference just like with the proposed farm bill, we need to let the government know that we're not going to tolerate any more interference and you're not taking our phones away from us.

admittedly, 3000 traffic fatalities is 3000 too many however when you look at the big picture, compared percentage wise to the millions of vehicles that are on the road today, that's not even 1% that were trying to change the rules for.

don't let the government take away any more of our freedoms and rights. Express your voices now!

Remember, as Bill Engvall is known to say, "you can't fix stupid!" well you can't fix stupid either through legislation either.

Also I wanted to point out that while reading comments on the DOT's [moderated] website, there are supporters of this bill thinking that it is a good idea because of what they've seen on the road. DON'T BE BLINDED BY THE PROPAGANDA AND LOOK AT YOURSELF AND YOUR OWN PERSONAL SITUATION.

By that I mean, yes there are people out there that can't walk and chew gum at the same time. There are people out there who walk across the street without looking to see if traffic is coming. There is been people who have been killed by trains while texting and listening to music at the same time [seriously].

So the next time that you're thinking that, "yes... we need to pass this type of bill" stop for a minute and think how such a bill would actually impact YOUR life by having THOSE RESTRICTIONS PUT ON YOU!

Regulating gadgets by the federal government is enumerated in which section of our Constitution?

but this is how it starts... just like with a seatbelt and which was originally sold as a secondary offense and now with a primary offense.

So with the recent ban on hand-held cell phones it really doesn't surprise me at all that they are going after all cellphones altogether.

as a commercial driver, I risk a penalty of $2,750 for each offense and the company that I work for can be fined $11,000 for using a hand-held cell phone while driving.

already there is been articles in the news where people try to comply with the current cell phone law by pulling over to the side of the road to use their phones and getting a citation for stopping at the side of the road.

They argue that it's all about safety...

Most of us aren't stupid and we've learned that it's all about money.

But you're not taking away my cell phone from my personal car... sorry!
