Quit Yer Yammerin’: Shut Up and Just Drive

Come Tuesday, you’ll have to think twice before picking up that cell phone in your car. California law will require a hands-free device for all phone calls [1]. Hey, there’s still texting, right?

Also, let your little bro or sis know that they can’t even talk at all if they’re under 18. Taunting is permitted.

Drivers found in violation of the new law will find themselves smacked with a $20 fine ( which is actually more like $76 with all the fees figured in). Our question? Does this apply to cyclists as well and when will they ever start stopping at stop signs and red lights?
