Bean pens piece about cell phone use when driving

Greater Media Executive Editor Greg Bean has written a strong editorial about cell phone use/abuse. He also offers very thought-provoking insight into the law supposedly banning cell phone use by drivers.

In general, I believe that government trying to regulate the behavior of citizens is wrong, except where behavior directly harms or endangers others. Yet there is a correlation between cell phone use when driving and increased driver hazards to themselves and others. So, for as much as I hate governmental intrusion into the lives of Americans, I have to say this law is probably right.
