La. goes after cell phones

Posted By on Wed, Apr 16, 2008 at 1:50 PM

Who'dda thunk my old home state would be out in front on a safety issue, trying to curb hands-on cell phone use and texting while driving? The next thing you know Louisiana may try to outlaw drive-through daiquiri stands.

A bill banning the use of hand-held cell phones by drivers in moving vehicles got out of committee Monday and moves to the House floor for debate. It would also ban text messaging and e-mailing while driving.
