What about Police, Fire and Rescue personnel that are speeding down the road
responding to a call, steering the vehicle with one hand and using the radio
microphone with the other hand?

This law must have been sponsored by the ARRL,  because like everything else
they purport, its pure BS.

Today, September 1st, 1999; marks the beginning of fines being issued in
a local Ohio town if a driver is caught using a cell phone without the
hands free feature.  You can of course pull over and use it.
Emergencies are the exception.  From March till yesterday, August 31st,
1999; only warnings were issued.

While traveling take a look at the other drivers using cell phones. They try
to punch in phone numbers and drive at the same time.
some of those same people have caused major accidents leading to
extreme injuries and even death.

So cracking down on the drivers trying to use hand held cell phones should
have taken place along time ago.  About the same time the EPCA law took
place.

In 1988, I had a cellular phone in my car and it was voice activated.  So
the technology for the voice activation of a cell phone is nothing new.

People today must have a hand held cell phone in their hand......it is just
a symbol of status.....the same applied to pagers several years ago.  At
work a few people have 2 cell phones clipped to their belt and a few
pagers....if you look closer, you might see a 2 way radio also......

What will the next 5 years bring............

Would using cb radios or ham radios violate such a law, or is it just for
phones?

As far as I know; it just applies to phones.  But then again I am not a
legal expert.

Is there any doubt we're headed towards a police state?  Goodbye: personal
freedoms.  Hello: big government, controlling every aspect of our lives.

Nope.  That would result in fewer dollars for the allmighty cellular telephone
industry. They lobby the best Congre$$ that money can buy.

I'm in Cleveland, of which the city in question is a suburb.  On a local
radio talk show, a caller spoke of how cell phones were hazardous to use
while driving and how he had experienced several close calls while
driving while using his cell phone.  He then went on to say he was glad
they passed the law because, get this, he said "I know it's dangerous,
but I use it anyway, so I want them to pass a law to make me stop,
because I can't stop myself."  This is the mentality that will
eventually have the USA looking like the Soviet Union.

No. No, no, no. More stupid ridiculous laws and freedoms lost for the
"common good" What a bunch of ignorant political bull.

The oh so wise government of the United States has outlawed looking into
open windows instead of requiring those who do not want their windows looked
in to put up curtains. Think about it. It's the truth. And now this, writing
a law punishing the uncoordinated morons who can't talk and drive (or walk
and chew gum) at the same time. And all the people say "hooray, hooray"
encouraging the other states to follow suit. You ignorant fools....

Just wait, soon you won't be able to drive your car with the radio on,
because the same idiots who caused wrecks while talking on cell phones will
now try tuning and driving at the same time. Or cars will be required to
drive for you, at the government approved speed limits.  Big brother loves
you and doesn't want you to get hurt or killed! (After all, dead men tell no
tales - and pay no taxes...)

What will the next 5 years bring? More unenforceable and stupid laws like
this written to cater to the general public's ever lowering average I.Q.,
that's what. Cars that drive themselves and pull over at a police officer's
whim for any or no reason at all. Gun ownership limited to military and law
enforcement. Nightly curfews. A national ban on profanity and cigarettes and
beer and salt and anything else that is bad for you. Remember the movie
Demolition Man? It seemed so funny and outlandish then. But today the
"utopia" of San Angeles is almost normal looking, isn't it. I can actually
picture Dr. Kokto's dream city becoming a reality.

Yeah right you say. Never happen you say. Don't be so sure. When it happens
I probably won't even have the legal right to say I told you so.

Sad....

This is a great law!
This needs to be implemented everywhere.

I think not!

I'm not a fool and i'm not ignorant.
Is the above like what you said when DUI or DWI was made law?
I like the above law.
People can't drive and talk at the same time.
Cheers to the government.

Sarcasm at its best.

Do you have any proof of the lower I.Q averages or are you talking out
your ass?

Quote:> Gun ownership limited to military and law

The above is the utopian dream of everybody you elect to office.
Whether it be Republican or Democrat.

Quote:>A national ban on profanity and cigarettes

You can't mess with the freedom of speech.
Profanity is here to stay!

You have the right to say any kind of profanity you want and to have
any ***ed sex that your mind can imagine.

What else do you want?

If you want anything else, you will be subject to be shot or thrown
into a prison camp.
Y2K and martial law is fast coming upon us.
You WILL OBEY or will be shot or Starved to death.
Unless, you have food reserves.

Cheers!
