The New York senate realizes that their are still stupid people out there and have recently passed a bill stating that it is now illegal to text, play video games or surf the web on a mobile/portable device while driving.
Well this sucks for me.
I actually don't mind it. I would rather have the person riding shotgun to do all of that for me.
good, New Yorkers drive crazy enough as it is.
Nah.... New Jersey Drivers are crazy drivers.
If New York drivers get any more crazy, we would be Boston drivers.
Florida drivers are much worse. This also went illegal in PA last year I think. http://www.youtube.com/watc...
I agree with 1.5 ENTIRELY. Florida is needs to absolutley ban texting while driving. I already have to drive on one of the worst fatality highways in the US(Hwy 98) to work everyday, texting just makes it terribly worse. But I get mad at the texters that do it at a light, and go many seconds after it turns green. That video is perfect proof why it needs to be banned nation wide while driving. Talking though, is a better solution to this problem.
ahh whilst driving...i thought no matter what, which would have been REALLY stupid.
sorry mate, that's what no sleep does to me...fixed the title now.
well i think thats good, saving lives is important, and i don't want to be driving my family somewhere and some dumbass hit me with there car all because they needed to text someone "lol"
About dam time. U know how many close call i get into accident to dumb people on the phone /texting while driving... I think they need to be put in jail for 3 years for this. Not some bs 100k fine an 1-2 weeks in jail.
well its already like that in California.
... and I wish it was like this everywhere. Cars are meant to be driven...and have half naked women pose on top of them, not for texting, gaming, etc...
This is a good thing, it's frustrating when there is someone texting/talking on the phone is driving nearby.
This is like saying you can't watch a movie while driving, this should be one of those unwritten basic rules, but i guess as long as there idiots people, idiots laws will be written.
Too bad there are a lot of impatient lazy people in the world.
maybe they'll make a mobile Natal with blue-tooth. lol
Hmm...Ive sent texts and web browsed while driving, but I've yet to experience the thrilling excitement of gaming on the go. Looks like I'll be playing Metal Gear Solid Touch on the way to work in the morning, while going 65 in a 45 as usual.
stop being a fanboy, that games one of the worst on the iphone. just cause it has MGS in the title you were dumb enough to get it lol. go get crayon physics or zombieville usa some others but i dont remember the names.
Lmao, Dr. Phil lecturing again. I was just goofing off, as I don't own MGST, but I do enjoy severely disobeying speed limits. And I don't get caught thanks to my Gran Turismo and Need for Speed training.
it's already like that here in brazil too, btw, what moron could possibly play games while driving?! o_O
its already illegal were i live so no news for me and if ur wondering im from Montreal quebecc
now I can't text while doing wheelies and stoppies on my motorcycle.
people surf the web and game while driving too!? Good lord is humanity just getting dumber and dumber each day? The fact that we have to make a law for it just speaks volumes about the stupidity of mankind. But then again, this isn't too surprising. Florida has a law that says "you cannot drive your boat on the freeway". No, I'm not making that up. It's attached to a rather funny story and I suggest looking it up
Hours of boring classes in high school have taught me the ability to text by orientating (orienting for the Americans) from the ridge in the number 5 so I don't even have to look at my phone. But wouldn't it be hard to prove someone texting or playing a game?
I think they should make being on the cell phone while driving illegal period. Seems almost every accident is caused by some idiot on the phone or doing something with the phone. I say start giving out tickets to anyone on the phone while driving just like they will stop you and give you a ticket for not wearing your seat belt. Then they can use that money to fix stuff rather then tax the poop out of people.
People in California are a little more stupid i've seen more than 8 people in the same stoplight talking on the phone or texting and thats only one stop light, from work to my home there is about 6 or 7 stoplights and god i've seen 6 car crash accidents for the same reason what's the reason? Phone either talking or texting. And i've seen police do nothing and they look at the person on the phone straight in the eye and they do nothing, we have pretty crzy drivers here in California. Out of all the car accidents i've seen there has only been one that was really bad, guy crashed and his arm got cut off because he had it outside the window and he hit a tree with his arm, it was pretty bloody.
