Reminder for Cali drivers - new cell phone laws in effect 7/1

Recommended Posts

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 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!

    • Good afternoon, I wanted to inquire if anyone has or knows someone who got married at this resort. How was it? How are the coordinators? Packages that were chosen. Any help would be greatly appreciated.   Thanks.
    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
