Last week, while talking on a radio interview, Rep. Dan Lungren was pulled over for speeding on his way to his office in DC. To make matters worse, apparently he was being rather unsafe with that cell phone of his. Dr. Bera, who is running for Congress against Lungren, delivered a bluetooth headset to the Congressman’s office. Of course, Lungren got away with a warning from the police officer. Must be nice.
You probably know that talking on a cell phone while driving is illegal in California. However, we should all strive to stay off the cell phone completely while driving. I’ll admit to using my phone with my bluetooth on occasion, but the studies about this practice are really quite horrifying. Driving while talking on the cell phone yields drivers who are basically as bad as drunk driver. And that’s with the handsfree.
