    Texting while riding hands free

    See it here:

    It's an excellent example of how and why the public will embrace stupid laws. Most people feel that laws are for everybody else. How else does one explain the logic of support for incorrectly set speed limits when there is majority non-compliance? Or other laws designed for micro management when there is no hope they'll be enforced?

    The answer is that nearly everybody feels THEY are able to drive and ride as they please while the law is for the other guy who is too stupid and needs to be told what to do.

    Sikorsky would know how to justify this. Perhaps they're just really well trained, right? Or it's vital for the public good, ...or probably being notified of some essential assignment, ...or donuts-on-sale notification.

    Personally, I miss Sikorsky -- didn't always agree with his opinions, but was always food for thought

    He was an interesting case study. Never have I met someone so consistently obstinant in maintaining an increasingly indefensible position.

    Not really that shocking, we see cops inside cruisers having one hand with telephone to their ears all the time.

    that is in NO way comparable to textinig while riding a motorcycle, and they are entitled to use the phone in the car while in pursuit of their duties, but this is just Full retard, and you know what they say....
