of course, big trucks mean big accidents, 80% of which were caused by cars, and another 15% by either a swift/werner/schnider truck

As soon as I heard about this I ordered a bluetooth. I never talked much before. Now any talking I do will be legal. Way not worth the risk. And of course, nothing handed down to the worst culprits of phone use and driving... the general public.

even if they did ban texting and using a phone while driving for 4 wheelers it would be extremely hard to enforce. it would be like drinking and driving, you know they're out there you just have to find them.
