An associate of mine was recently penalized for using his cellphone while driving. That's fine - that's the law.
But I think the law should be either relaxed or expanded.
If my wife phones my cell with a family crisis, I'm going to answer the phone, regardless of whether I am behind the wheel.
What about other drivers and other distractions? Like people who drive with their pets on their laps, women who put on their makeup or guys who shave on the way to the office, or people who eat their lunch while driving?
With the latest rash of hit-and-run pedestrian accidents in the Lower Mainland, one wonders if any of those drivers were distracted by such things.
