Here in CA as long as you have rearview mirror on you windshield it is not illegal to drive without a passenger mirror.

up here it's as long as you have two mirrors, that is all that is needed. you could have both sides and be good. one side and a rear and be good.

I love that cell phone laws have been passed. I think we need more.

I'm sick of people not paying attention almost killing me while I'm on the bike or in the truck.

Cell phones shouldn't be used on the road period.

Even with a hands-free kit, the driver is still distracted with the call instead of the road. What's worse is that the other person on the call cannot detect situations that might cause trouble and stop the conversation... Talking to people that are IN the car is a different story 'cause while they are talking, they can still see what's going on and if there's an "OH SHYTE" moment, they'll pause the conversation right away.

I prefer them not intruding on what I do in my car or other aspects of my life....


I am perfectly capable on making the decision on which is more important: the phone call or my paying attention while driving. Don't punish the smart ones for the idiots out there's problems. If you're an idiot who can barely drive as it is, no way in hell should you have a cell phone to your ear or even a radio playing in the car. But if you're smart and attentive to what's really important, I feel you should have every right to have that phone to your ear. That's how I look at it.

its not intrusion when it relates to the safety of others around you. you might be able to handle talking on the phone and driving but millions of others cannot, and i dont want them around me on the road. i would be more than happy to not be able to use my own phone in the truck while im driving if i know my family and i will be a little safer on the road without as many retards running us off the highway or running lights and stop signs and sadly, women seem to be the worst about that around here. get off the phone and drive! hell if it was up to me, women wouldnt be able to drive unless they can pass a very extensive drivers ed class. lol (flame suit on)

^^I AGREE!!! Not only that, it's ALWAYS women I see all over the damn road ON their cell phones!!!

I like the idea of keeping others on the road safe.....but seriously, I can't stand it because I am perfectly capable of being safe and doing it and not being stupid. Coming from a delivery truck/construction background, it was almost required to be on the phone with customers or bosses or getting directions. So see my dillema? lol.

o yeah i do agree with you about that, i got used to multitasking while driving when i was overseas running convoys but i dont care how good your are, its still i little bit of a distraction. im usually not about more laws and regulations but i am all for cell phone laws, ive seen sooo many accidents and near accidents from them recently, its just getting worse. something needs to be done about it. get this, on the highway the other day coming home from worked i passed a guy that was on 2 phones, texting with one and talking on the other. i couldnt believe what i was seeing.

I completely agree with you... I feel I can make a call and still concentrate on the road (mostly 'cause I always have to re-ask "What did you just say?" 'cause I wasn't paying attention to the phone call. lol)

But unfortunately, MOST people cannot seem to grasp the fact that the road is more important than the call. I saw a driver today using his cell phone on the highway AND taking notes on a pad on the center console.... THAT shyte pisses me off. And it was in a construction zone to boot.

The sad thing is around here the laws didn't change anything. I still see people driving while texting/surfing the web/talking all the time.

I'm from Indiana originally and we don't have cell phone laws. Then I joined the military and moved to NC, and then to CA, both have cell phone laws and so does being aboard base. I hated the cell phone laws at first, and they still kind of irritate me, but I find myself getting more irritated when I see someone driving like a retard, then pull up beside them, and what do ya know... they're on a cell phone driving like a moron. But then again, CA drivers in general are just terrible.
