In Toronto, and I believe the rest of Ontario are issuing a ban today, official at 12:30pm EST on cell phone use while driving. This includes texting, emailing, and just talking on a phone. However, hands-free devices are still permitted. They say that talking on a phone increases your chances of crashing to that of driving with a BAC of .08%, or the old legal limit in Ontario (is now .05). But my question is, and I ask all of you as well...Is this ban (and subsequent equivalence compared to DWI) justified? Or is it just bullshit? Personally, I claim the latter. I mean, I can understand texting. I have a qwerty phone and I text while driving even though I know I shouldn't...But when calling and talking to someone on the phone, I don't see how it can be compared to drinking while [legally] drunk. When I'm driving normally, I drive with only one hand, usually on the lower part of the wheel. So when I'm on the phone, I am driving with only one hand. Talking while driving is the same on a phone as having someone in the passenger seat. What's your take on all of this, XoO?
