    I understand the idea, and it makes sense. But why is holding a phone to your head(not texting) with one hand illegal but driving with your knee and using both hands to stuff a double bacon cheezburger into your face perfectly okay? Or messing with an LED touchscreen on your dash is somehow okay because its mounted to the vehicle?

    It's illegal to talk on the phone while driving? Oops.

    I don’t understand the speaker phone mode when driving thing? Is it really that hard to hold to your ear while driving? You can look at every other driver now driving glancing down every couple seconds too. Amazes me.

    A lot of people think that having the phone on speaker is like using a hands free device and therefore okay. Somehow they don't grasp the "hands free" part.

    I have absolutely no evidence to back this up, but phones are the #1 cause of accidents.

    But it's OK to drive around with a damn dog in your lap.

    What's the difference in driving while holding a phone to your ear and women driving to work in the mornings while putting on makeup and doing their nails.
