Full story: Berkshire Eagle

All Massachusetts motorists, including police, would be barred from texting while driving and older drivers would undergo vision tests every five years under a bill released by a special legislative committee Tuesday.

Using a cell phone, with or with out hands free, is the equivalent of driving under the influence. if the vehicle is in motion, there should be NO cell phone use. Your 'important call' is not worth injuring or killing someone, which happens often. Just ask that woman hit in the crosswalk in Gt. Barrington. Oh, that's right, you can't, she died. The driver was yakking away on her phone and blew through the crosswalk after passing a vehicle stopped for the pedestrian. The law does not go near far enough, which is no surprise as I am sure our beloved politicians suck up massive donations from cell companies and use there cells while driving all the time. It's dangerous. Period. (Yes, I have a cell phone and no, I don't use it while driving.)
Agreed

It's truly sad that anybody needs to be told that.
