Cell Phone Ban : Do you feel better on the road?

Cell Phone Ban : Do you feel better on the road?

Across the country the use of cellphones while driving is being cracked down on. Depending on your area it could be as simple as “no texting” or as strict as no cell phone use, unless on work duty.

The statistics for accidents and deaths due to use of cellphones are very high, to be honest it is one of the biggest fears I have as a cyclist on the road.

What are your local governments doing and how does it make you feel?

Locally, we have a ban on texting while driving.  I don’t think it has changed much of anything and it doesn’t make me feel better.  After the first few times friends of mine get tickets for using their iPhones or Blackberry’s while driving, then I will feel like change is happening.

Until then, I will keep my children on side roads with a good shoulder or dirt paths.
