It will help safety. I don't know why it is restricted to hand held phones. I have seen several people in what appeared to be an argument on cell phones dirve all over the road creating a hazard for others. Do business from your office or pull over to the side of the road if you get a call on your way to the golf course or marina.
Not every bill that is proposed has to do with promoting business in Michigan. Some bills are about saving lives. This is one of them. Those claiming this bill would make conducting business in Michigan harder are being disingenuious. Those claiming this bill would do nothing to protect the safety of Michigan citizens are uninformed.
Driving requires ones full attention.
I support this bill.
They have a hard time deciding how to continue to spend and tax us to death while thousands of people flee Michigan to find work, but they can pass another ineffective law that does nothing to protect the safety of our citizens but does make it just a little bit more difficult to conduct business in Michigan. Voted for by Democrats and Republicans alike. November can't come soon enough.
