Talking on a cell phone while driving is more hazardous to your health than driving with young kids in the car. Discuss.
I am all for British Columbia's new law that is designed to deter people from talking on their cell phones while driving. How many times have I, both as a pedestrian and driver/passenger, nearly been a victim of a road accident because somebody thought he/she could multi-task while driving? Too many to count.
But what about having young kids in your car? They're pretty distracting too. Perhaps more so than talking on a cell phone, I would argue some days. If only we could make kids hands-free with a mute button or at least an option to vibrate instead. Parenthood would be so much more civilized that way!
