The carnage must stop. Hand-held devices are killing more Idahoans than guns, knives, bow and arrows, ladders, and bathtubs.
Distracted driving needs to be controlled by some simple realistic regulations by the federal government, such as licensing of all hand-held devices with annual tests and fees to ensure holders are competent. A data base with a new bureaucracy to monitor and regulate the sale and use of all devices. After all it is the federal governments job to regulate and control us pretending that it increases our safety while increasing the governments size and power.
I don’t intend to belittle the seriousness of distracted driving but some issues should be the responsibility of state and local jurisdictions. I am sick of this governments overreach into my freedom and liberties.
