Don’t talk and drive

Driver on cellphoneI drive around town most days and almost every time I see a motorist do something stupid (and dangerous) I see the ever-present cell phone stuck to the side of the idiot’s head.  I wish we’d do something like the Scots who are now using speed cameras, that are used to tag speeders, to nail cell phone using drivers for the levying of fines.  It works like the cameras Houston recently mounted on traffic signals, violators receive a fine in the mail after the fact. 

“If officers using mobile cameras see someone using a hand-held phone, whether with their own eyes or through the lens of their camera, then they are fair game.”

I would SO love to see this here in Houston.
