If there is one thing that I really hate, its people driving while trying to use their cell phones. Being it yacking away, or texting, both take their focus off of the road, and has lead to countless accidents. Now it looks like the Obama administration are looking at the possibility of having cars equipped with jamming devices in the future so that people simply can't use their cell phones while driving.
I'm sure some people will come out whining that it also punishes passengers in the car since they won't be able to use their phones either, and if someone needs to call 911 they won't be able to as long as the jammer is in operation, but, unfortunately, these people who insist on using their phones while driving have ruined it all for the rest of us (though I suspect any jammers would have an exception built in for calling 911). We've had over a decade to try and get these morons to stop fiddling with their phones, and keep their eyes on the road, yet they refuse to listen. Now the choice may be made for them, so, if anyone is upset about this, get mad at the drivers, not the administration who have tried all other avenues with little success.
