Cell phone ban
By Penny Eubanks

I read that City Council will be considering a measure to ban
use of a cell phone while driving in the city limits. Admittedly
I use my cell phone while on the road. I also listen to the radio,
change stations, put in a new cd to play, talk to my passenger
- even glance their way now and then, sing, glance at passing
scenery, etc. Oh yeah if I was a smoker I probably would even
open a pack of cigarettes and smoke one! I wonder when "Big
Brother" plans to regulate/ban all of those actions as well.
I would say that doing any of the above falls into the same category
of distraction actions as cell phone use does. If the intent
is for drivers to keep both hands on the wheel at all times instead
of holding a cell phone to the ear, changing the radio station,
or smoking a cigarette then by golly on a nice day we best
not open the window and rest our arm in the sun while driving
with the other hand! "Big Brother" should stop trying
to mold everyone into robotic mindless characters!
