The new ban on the use of cell phones in the City of Allentown is being challenged by a lawyer, yes a lawyer, but not one of my kind. Joseph Maher, Esq. has announced today that he will fight this new law which makes it illegal to text or use a non hands free cell device while driving. Joe thinks it is a bad law and has professed that he will drive up and down Hamilton street using his phone and flaunting its use to any policeman he sees. He also says he will represent, for free, anyone who is charged under this law. Way to go Joe. As a lawyer who has spent his life trying to make life a little safer for our kids I truly applaud Joe's ignorance. He obviously does not know the overwhelming statistics which are clear and convincing regarding the connection between texting and cell phone use and car accidents. True, we all love to multitask, but let's face it, the more things you try to do at the same time the more likely you will make a mistake at one of them. A child on a bicycle or elderly person crossing the street doesn't stand a chance if you are distracted for even a moment. Joe, Please give our kids a break. The Allentown City Council got it right this time and they should be given kudos for their bold action. Good job. If you see Joe in his car please beep since he is probably texting or checking his e-mail.

Great post! Since reading the article on Joe Maher's "mission" in the Morning Call a few weeks ago, I wondered why I hadn't seen any feedback until now. I was so outraged by his lack of concern for safety I felt I needed to do something. So I sent the article and his picture to the Oprah Blog on NO CELL PHONES WHILE DRIVING. Have you sign the pledge yet?
