    If you are driving around town with a Cell phone glued to your ear or texting while driving STOP..................!!!! Its illegal and VERY dangerous. FYI this includes at stop signs and stop lights. In case you are interested many courts are now finding that a Cell phone in your hand is a violation no matter what you are doing with it...........

    CVC 23123 and 23123.5 in case you haven't heard

    Yep - it's really irritating when you are waiting at a red light with 5 cars in front of you and miss the light because some asshat is texting. This happens often - I usually see one or more people texting at lights.

    IF people kept their eyes on the road and talked it really isn't much different than talking with a passenger. It's the texting/dialing.........

    Actually there is a study.......The brain works much different when talking to a passenger VS being on the phone with them
    Cell phone talking can be as dangerous as DUI.............NO JOKE

    Arizona has no laws against talking while driving or texting. Show me where the law helps.

    I talk 5000-6000 minutes a month on my phone. 80% while driving. Never had a issue. The problem is young drivers, and people who do not do it for a living...i.e. Mom's shopping on weekends.

    Arizona has a law against distracted driving - Could be putting on make-up, eating a hamburger, talking on the phone...Enforce laws against people who cannot drive. Not ones who can.

    so far the law isn't helping because its being ignored..................
    Its dangerous and annoying
    Yeah we all think we are great drivers until we crash and someone gets hurt
    maybe you are in the 10% that do it well.............

    You might want to really rethink that statement! LOL

    You need someone to show you how a law against texting while driving helps? Really?

    Trust me, I don't care if you are superman.... you cant effectively drive anywhere near as well, while texting vs not texting.

    Well for LE its legal but VERY dangerous I agree
    more LE officers killed in Auto accidents than anything

    maybe we all need to be a little less tied to our phones,iPads,laptops,etc.......whats the harm with pulling over and tending to these things?

    I agree.

    I'm legal too. I live and run business out of AZ.

    I just think more laws is not the answer. Someone prove to me more laws work...

    I won't even answer my phone when I'm in the truck. After 2-3 times I pull over to yell at em, unless it's the wife of course.

    I saw a young dude yesterday almost have a head on @ Gennessee and Mesa. Guy was texting and veered into the other side of the road. Idiot.

    Dude hit a guard rail at start of bridge on H Street Sunday in Lompoc and was doing 45. Railroad ties used to support rail were shattered and knocked into oncoming lanes. Fricking idiot. They should be treated like DWI. That will stop a few.
