Cell phone ban in Bermuda

It's at least four years too late, but Government actually did something I agree with, in regards to banning the use of cell phones while driving.

What remains to be seen is how this is enforced; police resources appear to be stretched really thin, and with cell phone use in cars and on motorbikes now firmly entrenched in our culture, it's going to be hard to see a drastic improvement in driving habits at this time.

And Government must make it clear that this legislation is not just simply another way to make some extra cash, but an actual road safety improvement where MPs and the like lead by example.

But at least it's a start.
