Espanola bans dialing while driving

As reported in the New Mexican.

For all of us who have watched inattentive drivers swerve, brake late, or have near misses while they dial their infernal phones or perform other domestic tasks, this is a small win. A very small one. I suspect compliance will be low.

I suspect we will have a cell phone law up in Bomb Town some day--after we have a deceased to name it after.

People are just too arrogant behind the wheel to know their own limits. We want it all--safety but no limits to the risky behavior we impose on others. When you are piloting 5500 lbs. of steel around our streets in close proximity to other people, you have some responsibilities far more important than that phone call.
