Bethlehem Public Safety Committee To Consider Cell Phone law

Just like the city of  Allentown our fair city of Bethlehem is considering a cell phone ban which will prohibit cell phone use while driving.  All of the specifics have not been released yet but the fine if you are caught would start at $50.  City Council refered it to the Safety Committee for further consideration. Texting or talking while driving can be as distracting as though a person has had several drinks. We have been encouraging everyone we know to take the Oprah Pledge (see previous post) promising that you will not use your cell at all or limit it to hands free devices. How many of you have had close calls with cell phone users or have almost caused an accident yourself ? I just had a call from a client, lets call her Ms. X., who told me she had just pulled off the road to talk with me because she was on her cell. Honest, I had nothing to do with it. Thanks Ms. X for giving us all a break and inspiring this post. Dennis F Feeley

Talking and texting while driving is out of control, especially among teens. I was nearly broad sided last summer by a young man in a Mercedes who rolled right through a stop sign because he was clearly on the phone. My wife was rear-ended two years because the driver behind her was on her cell phone and did not stop.

The real truth is that even hands free devices are a distraction. I didn't really appreciate how distracting until I went by the exit to my destination witout realizing.
