Ignoring the fact that the Trucking industry/labor unions would never allow a law outlawing CB's to go through there is a big difference in operations. A CB is 1 button to click, no looking. Not to mention it's an actual tool used for a ginormous trade. Yes, there is tons of chit chat on the line, yes you have channels, squelch, etc, but in general the only thing changed is the channel. Its not an apples to apples comparison.Marginjoey wrote: I mean HEY! CB's aint illegal? Why is my phone?
Oh, man! I would love to see a law like that here, but more in line with the Europeans: you can be pulled over simply for using your phone, rather than as a secondary offense like NY & NJ. Still, it is definitely a step in the right direction. I keep telling myself to buy a video camera, mount it in my car for a month or so, capture footage of moronic drivers trying to drive and talk at the same time, then uploading it to Youtube and the local news stations. It just blows my mind how piss-poor people become as drivers while talking on the phone.blink32 wrote: I, for one, am all for the law.
No longer a 2ndary in NJ. Not sure about NY but yea, needless to say ticketing has gone up lots.NVSteve wrote:secondary offense like NY & NJ.
