[Gatesedge] FW: cell phone use

NO, this did NOT pass, and was one of three introduced this last legislative
session. It would not have passed in it's current form with or without the
missing Dems; but it is only a matter of time before similar legislation
does (law enforcement has been this on for a couple years). So don't panic
now, but be ready in two years for some form of it to pass into law.
However, a bill adopting a "point system" for traffic convictions with
"surcharges" did, as well as a dramatic increase in state fees for traffic
fines did, including the cost of taking Defensive Driving. So...be prepared
to pay more for that speeding ticket!
