Tribune Poll >> Cell Phone Ban OK.

There is finally a bill up at the State Legislature that would deal with the problem of phoning/texting while driving, and according to the Salt Lake Tribune this morning, I'm not the only one that thinks it's about time. When asked "Would you support or oppose legislation restricting cell phone use while driving?", 80% of Utahns support the restricting of cell phone use in cars (with a 4.5% margin of error; Mason-Dixon Polling & Research Inc, Washington D.C.) You should all know my personal opinion by now - I hope the bill passes, even though the article admitted that it has a small chance. Once again showing that the Utah State Legislature truly represents it's constituents.

Gee, and they didn't even poll me.
You know that I feel that fire-hosing anyone with a phone while driving-- or talking loudly into their phone in public place (church, a store, a movie theatre, a restaurant) -- is the only way to go. somehow, though, I doubt my version of the bill would get passed.

See, I tend to agree with you. Maybe public caning?
