Put Down The Phone
Last year the law had been passed to ban talking on all mobile devices while driving. They law had kicked in around October and if you were pulled over the cops would give you a warning and or ticket. why the warning? well because they decided that they would give people the chance to get use to this new law and adjust. By 2010the law would kick in and you would be fined up to $500 dollars.
Do I agree that this new law was a great idea? You bet ya.
I've lost count the amount of times I've seen people on the phone not paying attention to where they are going. Making lane changes without signaling, cutting people off or having accidents. I even see people on the highway talking or texting and they are not even looking at the road. You are going 100km and you are paying attention to your phone...How smart is that?
All I know is the police will be giving out a lot of tickets since many people did not care about the law when it was first introduced and only warnings were given out.
What gets me is why would you risk your life and a life of someone else to text and drive or talk on your cell phone? you have enough to worry about when you drive. The phone can wait. If you have to use a phone get a hands free device or an earphone.
At one point we survived without the mobile phone. So please put down the phones, focus on the road.
