Good news. I was under the impression that talking on the cellphone was already banned. I don't plan on getting a bluetooth -- I don't talk that much on the cellphone anyway.
They banned talking on a cell phone while driving in NL a couple years back and I like the idea! Some people are way too distracted talking on the phone to drive properly.Effective late October. I wonder if this will extend to GPS devices?
So how will you cope? Getting one of those futuristic Bluetooth earpiece or just one of those wired set?
In case of emergency, i imagine you can always pull over and take the call.
You are right, it's not intuitive and I always thought this was overblown until I heard the following arguement. When you are talking to a passenger you may be just as distracted as talking on a cell, however, you now have another individual in the vehicle to warn you of potential dangers. That does make sense. So maybe they should allow cellphone usage as long as there are other passengers.It's not intuitive, because you wouldn't think there's a difference between talking into your headset and talking to a passenger, but apparently there is, and the cellphone is much more distracting.
