Now this will jam me up...

Council gives prelim approval to banning text messaging while driving. On it's face, this isn't a bad idea... for everyone but me. What I'd also like to see is a ban on cell phone use without a handsfree device. I saw a close call Thursday afternoon on Parmer when someone on the phone swerved into the other lane... and continued despite the fact that the driver in that lane was honking like a mad.

Come on, He Who Stands Up To Toby... make that happen!

As much as I hate to admit it, the texting needs to go. Handsfree cellphones ought to be required too for driving. The City of Austin will need to establish a 12 step program for obsessive/compulsive Blackberry and I-Phone users. It is an addiction after all.
