What gets me is how blarrrzay people are when it comes to vehicles and the risks of using mobile fones or any device in the vehicle. Driving is a serious matter. Do you see soldiers out in the "kiling fields", one hand on the gun, with the other texting? Do you see your favourite sporting hero out there on a court or field, or race track texting or phoning as they play their sport? Ever tried swimming whilst using your phone??? ALL have the answer of "NO" so why does it seem ok, to use a mobile phone whilst driving???
"COME ON PEOPLE, PULL YOUR HEADS IN AND THINK OF THE CONSEQUENCES."

Not so long ago, i seen the police talking about a device that will disable mobile fones in a vehicle. In my view, there should be NO debate about it, just do it. Make it mandatory for all vehicles to be fitted with one of these "scramblers" or fone deactivators. For the cost of what one of these devices would be, is nothing compared to the cost of what a vehicle smash will cost. Just an idea - When registering a vehicle, the drivers phone could also be registered, then issued with the device and if caught trying to get around it by using another phone, make it a mandatory fine or instant disqualification of licence for what ever period
I am very much against speed cameras, as i do not see them there for the right reason but i would be all for the idea, of cameras fitted at intersections, along the road, 1/2 way up poles of traffic lights or what ever but with the cameras vision focusing into the windscreen area of a vehicle.
Once agian, say to yourself:
"IT COULDNT HAPPEN TO ME, BUT.......... COULD IT?"
