How does one fit a bandwagon on a mobile phone?

Poneke has blogged about cellphones and the call to ban their use whilst driving here.

Now the phone companies have called for a ban.

This part gets my back up:

Vodafone spokesman Raphael Hilbron said a ban would be the tipping point to get
people to do the right thing.

"People know it to be wrong, but because it's not illegal, perhaps there's not as much stigma attached to it and people think, 'Well, I'll do it because it's convenient'."

Sorry, Raphael but you've got it wrong. People do it because a) they think they are super good drivers and b) they don't give a shit about others on the road.

Making a law against it will NOT change that.
