    • I am the bad apple.  I try to talk and drive at the same time.  My new car does not come with wireless for phone.  I can use blue tooth though.  Texting is bad for I cannot do like my son - he can do it blind folded.  

      I do agree, like eating or putting makeup during driving.  It is dangerous for ourselves and others.

    • My biggest pet peeve is people texting!!  That is far worse than talking on the cell.  And I can always pick out which people are doing either.  They drive like a**es.

    • Now see teeky3 - that’s what people should do. If its an emergency pull over, if its not, call them back. Hard to believe we all used to lead our lives and check our answering machines when we got home—and we missed very little while we were out, without phones :) I was given a bluetooth and I use it for important calls when I’m driving.

    • It's the law across the whole of the UK and its very draconian – depending on where you are say on a motorway / freeway it's points on your licence which makes your insurance go up and a hefty fine / same in a built up area like near a school.
      If you get caught a second time it's prison – we have had some very high profile accidents where a family of five children die etc;
      I'm all in favour of it

    • I can understand and I am in sales, if I drive from one place to another, especially timing is an issue for me.  It is difficult.  I do like a car that can incorporate the phone so at least it is hand free for me.

    • Isn’t the law no hands-on talking? In Washington, DC (near me) you have to wear a headset (i.e. wireless talking only).

    • In CT the law is in effect for no talking on your cell phone. There is no law regarding texting. I think there needs to be. Texting while driving is worse than talking in my opinion.

    • Ok ladies the worst thing I have seen is a women reading a book while driving. I guess about a year ago a women wrote an article asking people to please don’t eat when you drive or read or put on make up , I am a single mom trying to stay live so, I can take care of my kids. I cut the article out and read it to my hubby and older son. It moved me so.

    • I’ve finally started using an ear piece in the car - I kept thinking - WHAT SORT OF EXAMPLE AM I SETTING FOR MY BOYS?!!  

      I don’t want them on the Phone AT ALL when they start driving - and yet they watch us be so lack and casual about it!

      Can’t wait till it passes here too - I am a much more responsible person by Force!! happy

    • My Hubby just bought me a new Ford Escape last week (I just wish I could drive it...as soon as the doc lets me take my cast off my foot). It has the microsoft sync in it.  When I need to use my phone, the car takes over the phone, and I can dial and answer and text just by talking to the car. It is all hands free. When a call comes in, I just use voice commands such as answer, reject, cancel etc. It’s pretty neat, but not very easy to learn how to use.  LOL
