Cell Phone use while driving not so dangerous after all

About 2 years ago The Highway Loss Data Institute (HLDI) insisted we needed to push legislation to ban cell phone usage while driving. They claimed that there was enough evidence to show that such laws would certainly have a positive net impact on vehicle crashes. Now the very same bureaucrats who urged for the laws have released the most recent study done showing that there is a zero impact from such laws when compared to other area with no such laws.

More freedom lost at the expense of the American Citizen. Of course some will argue that driving while using a cell phone is obviously dangerous so it's still a worth while law. People like this who would give up a little freedom for some security deserve neither freedom nor security, at least that's what Benjamin Franklin believed.
