What good is this law if it cannot be enforced, thus removing any incentive to abide by it and be safer when driving?
The alternatives available to those who still want to converse on the phone in their cars are also questionable.
Bluetooth hasn’t become a standard on all cellular phones, and many people cannot afford to go out and pay in excess of $100 for a new cellular phone with Bluetooth compatibility.
If I may reiterate, I am, if anything, more an advocate of safety than anyone else. I simply do not like to see the American taxpayer taken advantage of and made to suffer because of the greed of our government.
I, like anyone else, would love our roads to be safer for all of us but feel that passing a ridiculous law such as this is not an adequate solution, and is instead a lazy move on the part of the government.
Flag should stay in park during protest
I agree with the Montrose Peace Vigil members and their concern about the removal of the American flag during protests at the Vietnam War memorial in the Montrose Shopping Park (“Flag’s caretaker won’t waver with protesters,” Wednesday).
No, not with their insistent message that we end the war now — though it would be nice if we could — but with their call to keep our American flag waving during their demonstrations.
I believe in their right to peacefully assemble to make known their views. As they are protesting a war, it is right and fitting that they should do it at a war memorial. Who would pay attention if they did it in a city parking lot, for instance? I have also have seen counter-protesters assembled near the anti-war group. I approve of that too. In fact, I thank them for their support when I pass them.
