Driving And Mobile Phones

In Ontario, for almost a year now, it's been illegal to drive and use your mobile phone unless it's a hands free device. You'd never know such a law even exists, judging by how many people I see ignoring it. The problem is that it's impossible to enforce such a law. The police simply can't watch every driver in every car all the time.

It's typical of how laws are made. From a politician's point of view, a problem disappears once it is governed by a law. Are the roads any safer? Of course not! But we got a law now, so we can pretend that they are.
