The future

No, no, no, I agree that it SHOULD be stopped.  But it is unstoppable.
There is zero political will, and the opposition is legion and well-
funded.  You want to compare cell phone use to the drunk driving problem,
but it is actually akin to the "motorless carriage" problem in the age of
horse-drawn transportation and steam power.  There is no going back.  An
entire generation can't even imagine life without this technology.
Geezers are steadily being assimilated.  The ship has sailed.

Drunk driving has zero upside (or, at worst, no upside that is morally
defensible).  I hate cell phones as much as anybody (maybe more than,
since I still don't have one!), but even I must concede they have a lot of
utility.

So, since we will keep cell phones, then at least allow us driverless cars
to get some (and then more, and then most) distracted people out of the
driving business altogether!
