Safer roads

Posted By on Tue, Mar 6, 2007 at 5:52 AM

A bill to raise the minimum driving age to 15, restrict young drivers late at night and bar them from using cell phones and came out of committee yesterday. Good idea. Now can we extend that cell-phone restriction to adults, who aren't nearly so dextrous? I had to swerve to avoid a sideswipe on Mills Freeway yesterday by a middle-aged man raptly staring in the direction of his crotch and punching his digit at what I presume was a cell phone.
