Come July 1st, 2008, in California, two new laws will go into effect. From the California DMV:
The first prohibits all drivers from using a handheld wireless telephone while operating a motor vehicle, (Vehicle Code (VC) §23123). Motorists 18 and over may use a "hands-free device." Drivers under the age of 18 may NOT use a wireless telephone or hands-free device while operating a motor vehicle (VC §23124).
In the US, jurisdiction-wide bans on driving while talking are in place in California, Connecticut, New Jersey, New York, Utah, and Washington and the District of Columbia. Utah has named the offense careless driving. Various localities have banned cell phone use.
So what do you think? Should driving and talking on a mobile phone be banned everywhere?
