They have no safety inspections and laughable insurance requirements, but this measure will make Tennessee roads safe?

Tennessee is way behind the times. A lot of states have had this law for years now.

Distracted driving is more than talking on cellphones. Eating, putting on makeup, some of the stuff I see is just crazy.

They've had this law around here for years and it hasn't stopped most people from using the phone. The police themselves are the worst offenders as you see them driving with a cellphone to their ear all the time. What kind of example does that set?

Minnesota goes hands free on August 1. Opponents of the law cited that only well to do people can afford newer cars that build in the cell phone hands free ability into them, discriminating against the poor. What any of that argument has to do with safety, I'll never understand.

Of course studies show that hands free doesn't stop the distraction factor. Just talking to someone in the car is distracting. Some studies indicate that talking on a hands free device is equivalent to driving drunk.

Great idea… Having your phone in your hand and looking at it is a definite safety issue on the roads, especially with bad or new drivers.

A few years back when I first got a smart phone, I attempted to text while driving. This was on a super straight highway, no one else on the road. I was all over the road and decided I would never text while driving again. It's a lesson that some people don't learn until they're in an accident.

The only problem with that is the fine is too little, it should be $500 and 30 days license gone automatic, then enforce it to the max with cameras also.
If you want a law to work you have the make the punishment really painful, the $500 may not hurt everyone but burning the shoe leather for a month will most.
Ditto red light/stop sign running and tailgating. Get caught under 21 and license gone for a year mandatory.

If talking on a hands free device is like driving drunk, then holding a device and texting must be like a drunk passed out at the wheel going down the road.

Basically everything is distracting to a certain degree unless you're alone in the car and focusing like a fighter pilot in a dog fight while driving. I doubt they will ever outlaw talking to a passenger in a car, or using a hands free phone (which is essentially like talking to a passenger) while driving.

I think almost everyone is distracted while driving these days. Probably 8 times out of 10 when I'm following someone they can't keep the car from hitting the shoulder or the center lane dividing line, which means they really are drunk or they are distracted enough to not keep the car in their lane. It's pretty sad that people are literally becoming zombies behind the wheel of a potentially deadly instrument.
