So if you're over 18, you can still use your cell phone? That's pretty stupid. There are two types of people: Those who recognize that using a cell phone (hands free included) while driving is very stupid, and IDIOTS! Which are you?

Please let this law pass but make the penalties much, much tougher. A ten year loss of license first offense.

hmm

so if you're 90 years old with deteriorating motor skills and vision, you can still drive a car...and if you're an illegal alien with no proof of residency, you can still drive a car....but don't you dare send or look at a text message, boy howdy!

There is nothing redeemable about this state...Id say the lawmakers bite but you all voted for them. Therefore, the residents of MA are a joke.
