Define “on the phone”

After shaking my tiny fist at drivers who were on the phone, I was happy when the California law went into effect. Handset to your ear? Pull over here.

Unfortunately the rise of texting happened in the time between the law was drafted and when it was passed. So now, I’m seeing more people swerving than ever before because they’re taking their eyes off the road to type into Razrs and iPhones. I tried it myself the other night, very late when nobody else was on the road. It was the worst I’ve ever driven. It was scary and stupid.

Twice in the last few days I’ve seen people weaving like they were drunk. The only substance they were on was Blackberry.
