      you can't talk on a cell phone while driving in Chicago either, and I always forget! (you can hands free though)

      Hopefully I am not still here, but thanks for the reminder!

          I have a feeling more states will follow. Oregon has been discussing this one for awhile now.

            I think they talked about it here in Ohio as well.
            Would be very good.
            Yesterday morning some lady on her cell phone flew through a red light right infront of me. My light had been green for a while!
            She was not paying one bit of attention. We were both lucky. But she was also stupid.

                I know its for our safety, but if the govt want us to get a head set, they should pay for it! I can't afford one right now! Our gas prices are the highest in the nation! Apparently we pay the highest taxes on gas! Okay, I'm done. I just think this sucks!

                  Oh my gawsh, it does totally suck right now! I have never worried about gas and now I am careful where I drive. I make sure that if I am going in one direction I will make a few stops to make it worth my while.

                    I was driving on the 10 the other day and they had a flashing sign about this law, that's how I remembered.

                    I hate the headsets, I have one and never use it. I think they look so silly...maybe it's just where I live but people are on them everywhere you go like they are secret service or something...lol It's going to suck so bad to have to use one. I think I'd rather not talk on the phone in the car.

                    As for gas, I literally work 1 mile from home and don't drive too far outside of work, so I don't feel it. But, if I drove more I'm sure it would be killing me! The trip to the OC and back last week was more costly than it used to be, that's for sure!
