RE: Speeding ticket options

Big brother is obviously watching y'all closely.  That scares me worse
than someone on a cell phone!

Well, if there was an accident, at least they could call for help! ;)

Keep in mind, I don't use my phone often when driving, but it does
occasionaly happen, and people occasionaly have to get in touch with me.
 I just think I can concentrate more on the road than my conversation. 
Maybee I am the minority here though.
