Why do we get so mad at people talking on their cell while driving? Yet we always chuckle at all those women (and perhaps men) who put on their makeup while behind the wheel.
And remember all the fear about cell phones causing you to explode if you use it while filling your gas tank.
Click on fear for more info. Don’t be afraid. Actually, it is just a link to Eddie Izzard’s “Techo-Fear, Techno Joy” video. So go ahead, click without fear or guilt.
Granted, we should respect the consequences of our technology, but we should not fear it. Are we making cell phones the scapegoat for out techno-phobias? Instead of facing techno-issues we can’t or don’t want to address, we are passing lawsrestricting cell phone usage in moving vehicles. Take that Technology!
Are we like the wife who reads her husband the riot act for not taking out the trash while what’s really bothering her is that he is obviously cheating on her. She knows he’s cheating, but is afraid to confront him. So she scream at him for what she can instead of what’s really bothering her.
So I ask, what is really bothering you? Children starving, energy crisis, disease, pollution, global warning, thermonuclear war, or cell phone driving?
Starting July 1, 2008 in the state of California you cannot talk on your cell while driving unless you use a hands free device such as Bluetooth.
Do you think this law will really make you safer as you cruise down Santa Monica Boulevard? The following video provides the obvious answer:
A while you can’t cell-and-drive in California, in Georgia you can “pact heat” in your auto!
New GA laws allows guns in cars.
So let’s get this straight, you can’t communicate with another human while driving, but you can shoot one.
Is this one of those things that should bother us?
