Should Hawaii County Ban Drivers From Using Cell Phones… POLL

I’m bringing back the cell phone Poll in light of the recent developments in today’s paper.  If you voted previously… you will not be able to vote again.

  1. With the amount of hands-free options available these days there is no reason for having to talk on a cell phone while driving. In addition to talking, people are texting and emailing which is super dangerous – too many accidents occur as a result of people paying more attention to their phone rather than the road.

  2. I think that this is a silly law. We already have a law on the books that covers not paying attention to the road, and that includes doing anything, from eating to putting on makeup to talking on a cell phone.

    §291-12 Inattention to driving. Whoever operates any vehicle without due care or in a manner as to cause a collision with, or injury or damage to, as the case may be, any person, vehicle or other property shall be fined not more than $500 or imprisoned not more than thirty days, or both, and may be subject to a surcharge of up to $100 which shall be deposited into the trauma system special fund. [L 1971, c 150, §2; am L 1977, c 180, §1; am L 1998, c 287, §4; am L 2008, c 231, §6]

  3. I have seen people using the phone, drinking coffee and driving at the same time. You take your eyes off the road for a second and you could kill someone. (As it happened last year.) I think the hand-free devices should be promoted much more effectively. I have been using a hand-free device ever since I got my cell phone.
