No, I am with you. I guess the way I wrote it it doesn't sound that way
I drive 40 miles each way to work, so I really hate stupid drivers....and I see a lot of them
Yeah the way you wrote it could have went either way but whatever. Yeah I hear ya if you have to drive a lot for work I'm sure you get to see a ton of bad drivers first hand.

But after the past several years of dealing with idiots who have checked while behind the wheel because they have a phone in their ear, I'm very much for the ban. People are basically clueless anyway - one more distraction cuts their abilities just that much more.
I think the genie is out of the bottle now, though, so there's no way we're going to be quit of this problem ever again.
Yeah I can't say I have never answered my phone while driving but when I have I make sure and get over to the right lane, slow down and pay extra care to whats going on around me. Usually a "hey can I call you back I'm driving" is all I say, If it's real important I'll ask them to hold on and pull over. But because of my personal experiences with really bad cell phone drivers and my dislike of when people talk on the phone and drive I have quit doing it all together...I hate being a hypocrite.
Not that its much of a solution but how bout baning anything but hands free phones? Would that solve much? I dunno seems better, like you'd at least have 2 hands on the wheel.
