    Default July 1st - Hands free in CA

    Everyone have their bluetooth headsets ready? what a bunch of bullshit, it's the fact that you are talking while driving that is the problem, doesn't matter if you are holding the phone or not.

    Just say you were talking to your doctor about a medical issue. You're still allowed to do that, and they aren't allowed to question it.

    Wouldn't they just say you should've pulled over if it was that important?

    Nope. It's a part of the law. My dad's CHP and he told me that. Text Messaging is also still legal.

    I think texting is more worrisome than talking, frankly.

    You don't need earphones to listen. FM broadcasters, cassette adapters, aux in/out jacks, etc.

    The only time I've ever come close to having an accident due to not paying attention was trying to change cds in an in-dash cd changer. I don't try to text when driving though. That just seems like a dumb idea.

    It is only illegal if have a headphone for both ears. Having on ear uncovered or without an ear piece is ok. In California at least.

    Here's a wacky idea: wait until you get home to talk on the phone.

    I have one of those GPS map things in my car and it is more distracting than talking, texting, and iPodding combined.

    Yeah, those things are distracting as hell but texting while driving?!?! My car would flip in two seconds. On the other hand, I never ever text.

    My text typing effectiveness goes way down while driving, so I don't try.

    It's a good idea...

    I was on the phone while driving when I almost crashed head on into a blaring ambulance. Not gonna lie, but I almost peed my pants. I'm sorry, world.

    I'm stoked on this law. Personally, I'd like to just chuck my phone all together. Any excuse not to talk on the phone is fine by me.
