Between this and the new TSA crap (Full body scanners and groping....but no profiling of course...got to be politically correct), I'm about ready to violate Godwin's law. I hate Illinois Nazis.
From the Daily Caller
Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood said using a cell phone while driving is so dangerous that devices may soon be installed in cars to forcibly stop drivers — and potentially anyone else in the vehicle — from using them.
“There’s a lot of technology out there now that can disable phones and we’re looking at that,” said LaHood on MSNBC. LaHood said the cellphone scramblers were one way, and also stressed the importance of “personal responsibility.”
The hosts of Morning Joe pushed the secretary about the possibility of requiring scrambling technology installed in vehicles.
“I think it will be done,” said LaHood. “I think the technology
is there and I think you’re going to see the technology become adaptable in automobiles to disable these cell phones. We need to do a lot more if were going to save lives.”
Grab the pitchforks. Who the Hell's business is this of the FEDERAL government in DC? It's not. If local municipalities or states want to push this crap, that's one thing, but it's none of the fed's business. Period.
We also have laws against careless driving, reckless driving, crossing yellow lines, speeding, tailgating, and just about anything else you can think of. We don't need yet another law, especially one from the Feds. I've never gotten into an accident on my cell when I drive, mostly on rural roads. If LaHood over in Illinois or DC has a problem with that, he can go screw himself.
I've had more than enough of this crap from all branches of government, but especially the feds.
