Gullible Americans

• Williams
National Transportation Safety Board Chairwoman Deborah Hersman has called for states to mandate a total ban on cellphone usage while driving. She has also encouraged electronics manufacturers – via recommendations to the CTIA-The Wireless Association and the Consumer Electronics Association – to develop features that "disable the functions of portable electronic devices within reach of the driver when a vehicle is in motion." That means she wants to be able to turn off your cellphone while you're driving.
With very little evidence, the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration claims that there were some 3,092 roadway fatalities last year that involved distracted drivers. Americans ought to totally reject Hersman's agenda. It's the camel's nose into the tent. Down the road, we might expect mandates against talking to passengers while driving or putting on lipstick. They may even mandate the shutdown of drive-in restaurants as a contributory factor to driver distraction through eating while driving. You say, "Come on, Williams, you're paranoid. There are already laws against distracted driving, and it would never come to that!" Let's look at some other camels' noses into tents.

      If there was ever something that the "feds" ought to be doing, this is it!

       It's about time someone did something to keep the mindless fools who can't drive anyway from making a bad situatiopn worse, by trying to think, talk, and drive all at once. It should warrant a murder charge if someone causes a fatal accident while using a cellphone!

       Driving a motor vehicle is the most dangerous activity that any human who is not in combat ever engages in. All of those of us who know how to drive should demand to be protected from the mental midgets who can't find their a-- with one hand, let alone manipulate a 4,0000 lb. vehicle, while trying to get their puny brains and hands to work at the same time. (I hate to see any government intervention in any facet of human endeavor, but this crap has to stop! There are too many people being maimed and killed for no onther reason than some zip with a phone can't pull over or wait a few minutes to talk to someone. Enough is enouigh! In the meantime, they can all KMA!!!!!!!! Better yet, learn to drive!
