Should Car Phones Be Banned?
A number of public-safety groups are lobbying Congress to pass legislation banning car phones, calling them dangerous and distracting to the driver. What do you think?
“I couldn't concentrate on the road if I was yakking on the horn. It's distracting enough having my secretary blow me on those cross-town commutes.”
Greg Masters –
“Car phones? Oh, trés passé! Everybody who's anybody communicates via car fax.”
Tad Herman –
“I have no need for cars or phones, for I am a mollusk.”
Bob Dwyer –
“Having a phone in the car has made it so much easier to swerve.”
Helen Holt –
“Talking on the phone while driving is an accident waiting to happen, so I just sit in the garage all day, waiting for calls.”
Lynette Eggert –
“Car phone or no car phone, one thing is certain—I'm not gonna pay a lot for this muffler!”
