When / How should drivers be allowed to use cellphones?
Never. Any conversation with someone outside the car with you is dangerous, and passengers know when to shut up. 16%  16%  [ 5 ]
Hands Free. One can speak, observe, assess risks, and maintain good car control all at once. 38%  38%  [ 12 ]
Pull over. This call is important enough, that driving is the distraction. 13%  13%  [ 4 ]
Driving and talking at once is not dangerous for a licensed driver; my passengers and I do it all the time. 6%  6%  [ 2 ]
Other: please explain in a post 28%  28%  [ 9 ]

[quote="The Rushquote]I don't think it makes us lucky at all. It separated car from driver, which by extension permits other things to take its place, like cellphones.[/quote]

Sorry ,pal - think something got lost ---was being slightly sarcastic - van maker fits morecup holders-was this to allow van drivers to put cup down whilst phoning ?????.Personally I don't like auto transmission - as in you're reasoning plus more - gear control gives you control on tight bends when you run out of power in higher gears ,and in winter - on icy roads -gears take over from brakes.

lets bring sanity back to speed limits.
Drivers are like donkeys -they respond best to a carrot, not a stick .Road safety experts are like Asses - best kept covered up ,or sat on
