Back to the drawing board

Government nannies have had a setback in their campaign against the cell phone.
Anytime new technology comes along, the nannies try to use scare tactics to justify new regulations that will give them the control they so desperately want to have over the rest of us.
Cell phones are supposed to fry your brain and cause you to crash your car.
But, the Highway Loss Data Institute has just done a study of four states that banned the use of phones while driving.
Bans were supposed to reduce crashes. They didn't.
No one has ever explained the difference between talking to someone on the phone and talking to your spouse seated next to you, and I never heard a nanny propose a Shut up Your Spouse bill.
When using a hands free device there is exactly no difference.
The truth is, some people are careless and they would be careless tuning their radio or doing anything else if they didn't have a cell phone.
