    Makese sense to me, though I think we need to worry more about cell phones then music. At least you can listen to "fast" music with both hands on the wheel.
    Player: Pentium 166MMX, Amptron 598LMR MB w/onboard Sound, Video, LAN, 10.2 Gig Fujitsu Laptop HD, Arise 865 DC-DC Converter, Lexan Case, Custom Software w/Voice Interface, MS Access Based Playlists
    Car: 1986 Mazda RX-7 Turbo (highly modded), 1978 RX-7 Beater (Dead, parting out), 2001 Honda Insight
    "If one more body-kitted, cut-spring-lowered, farty-exhausted Civic revs on me at an intersection, I swear I'm going to get out of my car and cram their ridiculous double-decker aluminium wing firmly up their rump."

    So wait... does that mean we'll go backwards if we rewind the song?

    Did you hear about that 120 car pileup in Georgia recently? It was due to fog - so we should make a law requiring every car to come equiped with a super expensive infrared vision system!

    How about mandatory governors on all engines limiting cars to a max of 65mph? That would certainly be safe!

    Shoot... Limiting rights of people isn't the answer. I use a cell phone all the time, but I do it safely! I simply take a quick message and call them back when I'm pulled over. Anyone who calls you will understand that.
    My solution is simple - Kill all the stupid people.

    (and use kittens for hamburgers)
