Oh, puh-leez. I'm more likely to break off an in-car conversation? Don't pretend to know me, and don't pretend to know the mind of the average driver. A conversation is a conversation.

The banning of hands-free devices is moronic and typical of the over-reaction of the government.

You miss the point, LibDem. Making snide remarks about how long I go without speaking to a friend is exactly what I could expect from someone who is into the government controlling every aspect of our lives.

What I asked is: how is talking to someone sitting beside me any different than using my hands-free device?

I completely agree that fumbling with a cell-phone, texting, reading emails....all that is dangerous.

So, LibDem, if you have a passenger in the car, is it dangerous for you to have a conversation with them?

Idiots can be phone-users and non-phone-users. I've been the victim of SEVERAL rear-end smashes, while I've been at a complete stop. None of those people were using a phone, but they were IDIOTS just the same.

If they are going to outlaw the use of hands-free devices, then they should also ban the driver from speaking to ANYONE in the car as well. I have hands-free bluetooth in my car. All I have to do is press a button on my steering wheel (no more dangerous than turning the cruise-control on), and my car asks me for a command. I say "Call Marie" and it calls my best friend for me. I then can speak to her as if she were sitting next to me. Why is THAT dangerous?? Heck yeah, fumbling with a phone, texting, reading emails....those things are all dangerous, crazy, and foolish.

But why is my hands-free device any different than speaking to Marie in the passenger seat?

The Cleveland Daily BLUNDER would never have the nerve to report what the Chatt Times reporter did. I'd like to know more about ckelly's comment. Never have heard this. Please explain further. Thanx.

Well, all I am seeing on this forum is a lot of speculation and no actual facts. People state some things as facts, but will not disclose how they know these things, so I personally believe these so-called "facts" are simply rumors.

The bottom line is that two young people with unlimited potential are now dead. How and why remains to be discovered...

I would like to know how Slov knows that they were laying on the tracks and not standing. I've heard speculation of that, but Slov is stating it as a fact. Is it a FACT?

It's not the school board's fault that some crack-heads vandalized the AC units. BUT, what IS the school board's fault is starting school soooo early!! What is the problem around here with all these schools starting in the middle of summer??? Seriously, it's a waste of taxpayer money to have to keep these huge school buildings cool in 90+ heat.
