No Bluetooth For You!

West University Place is a tiny little incorporated community surrounded by Houston. It’s an older area, but is filled with wealth, both old and new. In a move designed to “protect the chilluns”, they have banned all cell phone use in cars within a three block radius of the elementary school. A logical assumption would be that middle schoolers and up don’t need protection from idiot borg drivers. But that’s not how I see it. Unsafe driving is already a crime. There’s no reason to ban specific forms of it. If you’re shoving a burger down your throat and gliding through a stop sign, you should be busted. Cell phone use is no different. Unfortunately, there’s enough soccer mom, mini-van, yapping while driving types in the area that this will become a significant source of revenue.
