Smoking while driving could soon be illegal in New Jersey. Jeff Goldstein:
Answer me this: how would such a rule not set the precedent that leads, following the logic of “highway safety” advocates, to a future ban on radios, fast food,
cell phones, oral sex, lipstick, chapstick, manual transmissions, Big Gulps, open windows, the voice boxes of other passengers, and a host of other potential “distractions” that can take place inside the cockpit of an automobile?
Oral sex? Really. Yeah, I wanna see them ban that!
I think the precedent has already been set. Banning cell phones was it. From there, anything that could be a potential "distraction" is fair game for the government. Even if the activity causes 1% of all fatal accidents.
THINK OF THE LIVES THE GOVERNMENT WILL SAVE.
What about the restrictions of freedom in your own car?
YOU'RE A HEARTLESS CONSERVATIVE SOB.
