    Nothing like having another one like Peters was as well.

    I would agree that holding your breath is not a good idea.
    It is a political appointment and not one for intelligence.

    So why did they not cover the entire safety and distraction while driving issue by banning hand held cell phones for all drivers on all federal roads? Some of the worst drivers on the road are 4 wheelers. I guess a 26' Uhaul towing a car haulerThis is a political imposition, not a practical solution to safety. When you only apply the rules to half the people, there will be problems...eventually. :biggrin_25510:
