I would hate to be labelled a fuddy-duddy, but I'm glad that we are moving towards legislation that would make it illegal to use a mobile phone whilst driving. It seems to me such an unbelievably (albeit unconscious) selfish act. It's not so very different from the mindless chump who forgets his shotgun is loaded, and, on the way to his target shooting gun club plays with it and accidentally ends up shooting somebody. There are of course plenty of laws preventing this from happening which at least minimalise the likelihood that someone could be injured in this way. But at the moment the motor vehicle can still be driven legally in a mindlessly lethal manner.
