Oblivious to the urban legends, CT state senator wants to ban using cellphones at gas stations

GMA cellphone fire

Apparently Connecticut state senator Andrea Stillman has decided to introduce legislation based on a chain email she received, because she is trying to get a law passed that would require drivers to hang up their cellphones before filling up their cars at a gas station or face a $250 fine. This is despite the fact that there's no evidence that a cellphone has ever sparked a fire at a gas station.
