Driving and talking on cell phones

I got the idea for this disccussion from another discussion I responded to. What do you think about people who drive while talking on their cell phones? I live in New Jersey, and it is illegal, but people still do it. Last week in the town I go to church in, a pedestrian was killed when a woman talking on her cell phone jumped the curb while making a turn and hit him while he was waiting to cross the street. What punishment do you think she should face?

Well driving and talking on the phone can still be possible only if you are conversing using hands free kit. Most drivers get into accidents while they are attending to a call. If you think that your phone is ringing and you are driving and you happen to be using your mobile without the hands free headset or stuff, then don't accept the call, just continue driving or park your car somewhere else and take the call. About the penalty that this person committed, well it should be according to the laws governing that state. He or she is responsible for that caused and justice should be served.

I am always against someone who is doing multitasking while driving..lol what a careless attitude this is? If I would have been the judge going over the particular case you have mentioned, i would probably award her life imprisonment so that such a case is never repeated by anyone. it hurts me when I hear such cases still occurring despite of so many laws created to tackle these.
