    I remember learning some time ago that German auto engineers were baffled over customers wanting cup holders in cars.

    PA passed a law 7-8 years ago that made texting while driving illegal. What a lame law! I never heard of anyone getting ticketed for it. I see about 25% of people, maybe more, holding their phones in plain view while driving. I see people behind me in stopped traffic. Their eyes go down, then their eyes go up. Then repeat. It’s just nuts! We functioned perfectly well as a society before cell phones came along.

    Automobile manufacturers need to step in, and devise some type of sensor(s) that disables cell phones in the vehicle. That is the only way to stop the madness.

    My opinion as well. The ACLU will find something wrong with that though.

    Same in Florida.

    The fine is a whopping $30.00!

    THATS going to bring cell phone use while driving to a screeching halt! :confused:

    That'll cost him. I bought a telephone pole in 1978 and it cost me 484 dollars back then. No cell phone to drop but plenty of tuinals.
