Obama administration to press bans on all cell-phone use while driving?; Update: Poll added « Hot Air

However, even if we decided to ban cell phones, how exactly would that work?  LaHood is talking about using federal pressure, probably via transportation funding, to get the states to enact and enforce the bans, which amounts to a giant unfunded mandate on state and local law enforcement.  Not only is that inappropriate, it’s completely unrealistic.  How many police officers will even see a cell phone being used while driving?    Even when they do, is it a good use of limited law enforcement resources to go after cell-phone users rather than, say, speeders and those making unsafe lane changes?

OMG, what’s next?
