Something I Think We Can All Get Behind: New On-Road Restrictions on Cell Phones

I know some people (*cough*TreyGarrison*cough*) will cry “nanny state!” when discussion turns to the push to restrict cell phone usage while at the wheel, at the state and federal level. NOT ME. If I had a nickel for every time someone repeatedly swerves into my lane and, when I catch up to that person, I notice they have a phone pressed to their ear or, more often, their head pointing down toward the blue glow of a text message, I would have approximately 4,090,518,641 nickels. I think you would agree that is a ton of nickels. It’s like the entirety of Coit Road is an AT&T commercial. Also, they’re paying so little attention to the road, they fail to see even one of my extended middle fingers, let alone both.
