PostSubject: Cell Phone Use While Driving   Tue May 18, 2010 3:13 am

I am glad they have made a law disallowing cell phone use while driving. Not that I believe that using a cell phone while driving would effect your ability to drive in any way, but instead, because I have witnessed numerous people who are so incompetent that they simply could not handle talking and driving at the same time. I have been stuck waiting at a green light for over 30 seconds simply because the person in front of me could not pay enough attention to the street light while on their cell phone. Or the many times I have almost been run off the road on the highway by some moron on a cell phone. It is simply amazing how pathetic some people can be that the act of talking at the same time as driving can cause them to lose all of their motor skills.

it's not so much talking on the phone that bothers me, it is the retards that text while driving. i agree though that just about every time i see someone doing something stupid they have a cell phone in their hands.

"The laws aren’t reducing crashes, even though we know that such
laws have reduced hand-held phone use, and several studies have
established that phoning while driving increases crash risk," says
Adrian Lund, president of both the Insurance Institute for Highway
Safety and HLDI.
In New York the HLDI researchers did find a decrease in collision
claim frequencies, relative to comparison states, but this decreasing
trend began well before the state’s ban on hand-held phoning while
driving and actually paused briefly when the ban took effect. Trends in
the District of Columbia, Connecticut, and California didn’t change.
"So the new findings don’t match what we already know about the risk of phoning and texting while driving," Lund points out.
"If crash risk increases with phone use and fewer drivers use phones
where it’s illegal to do so, we would expect to see a decrease in
crashes. But we aren’t seeing it. Nor do we see collision claim
increases before the phone bans took effect. This is surprising, too,
given what we know about the growing use of cellphones and the risk of
phoning while driving. We’re currently gathering data to figure out
this mismatch."

That is because there is no actual decrease in cell phone use. People are simply more aware of their cell phones because they will be fined if a cop sees it. Which means they are using the same type of methods intelligent drivers use like the amazing speaker phone. By the sound of it, the law has been effective in increasing driver awareness which is beneficial, while also giving police the ability to fine morons who are causing blatantly obvious problems like we originally mentioned.
