Why can't Mr. Grzywna leave a message on his employee's cell phone, and trust his employee will listen to the message as soon as he's stopped his truck at the lumber yard, before going in to make his purchases?

I'll go one step further and suggest that our legislature ban having conversations while driving. In fact, I think it would be in the best interest of public safety to also ban thinking while driving. Our state government should have the power to enforce anything that might remove the minutest amount of potential distraction from vehicles.
For this reason, I am recommending we ban car stereos. I also think we should mandate the use of clear plastic and silicone wipers, instead of black ones. Passengers must wear full body restraint suits and be fully gagged, so that it may not be possible for them to move or make any noise. To remove the distraction of a full bladder, driving without a catheter installed should be illegal. Bumper stickers and vanity license plates should be outlawed, as they encourage drivers to read. All polysyllabic town names shall be henceforth changed to monosyllabic ones (we will in the future lawfully only refer to Montpelier as "Mont" while driving). In the fall, due to the majestic nature of Vermont foliage, all trees in view of state roads must be clear-cut to provide the least distracting driving experience possible on our roads.
Please understand that this is not an issue of personal freedom, but one of public safety. Think of the children.

look on the bright side...
with all the unemployement in the state...most folks aren't out and about...and those that are therefore have no need for a cell call...
maybe we can worry about cell phones once folks are back to work.
