A Californian state senator is trying to get statewide ban on cellphone use by drivers under the age of 18. But it's not the only cellphone-related ban that's on the table. One state senator there has proposed prohibiting the use of a hand-held cellphone while driving in a school zone, while another has introduced a bill that would impose fines on any driver who engaged in any of the following activities while driving: using a cellphone, adjusting the radio or CD player, smoking, eating, drinking, interacting with passengers (!), reading, writing, combing hair, or applying makeup. Sure, it's less hypocritical than the other bills, since it's pretty well established that most of these are just as distracting and dangerous for drivers as talking on a cellphone, but there is NO WAY that people in California (or anywhere else, for that matter) are going to accept a law which punishes them for fiddling with the radio while in traffic. No freaking way.

The solution? Just ban everything
