I heard on the news last night that VA was trying to pass a law making it illegal for kids 18 and under to use the phone while driving. This is bad for 2 reasons, most teens have phones so their parents can check up on them and they are often driving, and also, this is discriminatory. Older people are just as likely to mess up while talking (almost hit a concrete barrier myself the other day) so why just pick on kids? In some states (I think NY) it's illegal for anybody to talk while driving.

Yeah I agree, this doesn't make sense to me at all. In the Netherlands it's also illegal to use your phone while driving, unless you use it handsfree.

It should be illegal for everyone, everywhere, IMO. If you need to make a call SO bad, then pull over.
