Friendly reminder to go hands-free

Chicago, this is the first day that you may be ticketed for not using a headset or hands-free system when on your cell-phone.

Now to nail down those mascara wand waving, newspaper reading, hamburger eaters.

    I once read about a guy who switched on his Winnebago’s cruise control and then got in the back to fry an egg or whatever!

    Now thats Hands Free!

    I think he ever tried to sue Winnebago for it as he obviously crashed, as the manual didn’t say you could’nt ‘Cook n Cruise’

    You know, I remember hearing this story when I was a kid as well. Right when cruise control started appearing in more cars as a luxury add-on. :)

    I’m going to go look this up on Snopes. It seems like a good candidate for an urban myth.
