The issue of vehicular cellphone usage continues to be a problem that refuses to go away even though a $368 fine lurks if you are caught.
Doubtless there are some legal and/or constitutional issues involved with my idea, but I honestly feel that confiscation and destruction of a cellphone would be a much more effective tool for dissuading people from this dangerous activity.
By all means, keep the fine intact, but add to it bye-bye phone time. A tire iron or a drive-over would do the trick.
True, it’s easy to get a new phone, but replacing contacts and other important data would be time consuming and a right royal pain in the you know what. Groan!
How about the powers that be stop sucking around the edges on this issue and give it some teeth.
