    Cut it out already. You can buy a cell phone from Mohammad at the
    corner store for $50.
    Or get one for free if you sign one of those contracts from hell.

    >Jealousy breeds contempt.


    Why would I have "jealousy" for a vehicle that has sub-standard
    handling, breaking, crash rating and so on. Did you know I'm safer in
    my GTi if I hit a wall than any SUV? As a matter of fact the only time
    I'm not safer is if a cell phone driving behemoth hits me. 'Cause for
    some reason SUV's don't have to have 'crush zones' like cars. And the
    high bumpers that makes the highway unsafe for everyone else. The irony
    is the death rate for most SUV occupants are higher than many
    automobiles.

    The last resort of a brainless SUV owner and cell user when the logic
    has swamped them. Happens every time. Tell me Duck, when was the
    last time you actuall -used- the SUV capability?

    Instead of just posting the link to a slanted edit of the article, why not post a
    link to the Popular Science Web Site which has a less slanted version?

    See http://www.popsci.com/popsci/medicine/article/0,12543,573349,00.html or
    http://www.rfsafe.com/article490.html

    The key statement is:

    "Salford is the first to admit that it's too early to draw any conclusions, but
    contends the unusual results deserve a closer look. "The cellphone is a marvelous
    invention; it has probably saved thousands of lives," he says. "But governments and
    suppliers should be supporting more autonomous research." Meanwhile, Salford
    advises users to invest in hands-free headsets to reduce radiation exposure to the
    brain."

    You don't suppose Mr. Salford is trolling for research money - do you?

    I suggest you read http://www.fda.gov/fdac/features/2000/600_phone.html :

    From this article -

    "Many experts say that no matter how near the cell phone's antenna--even if it's
    right up against the skull--the six-tenths of a watt of power emitted couldn't
    possibly affect human health. They're probably right, says John E. Moulder, Ph.D.,
    a cancer researcher and professor of radiation oncology at the Medical College of
    Wisconsin. It's true, he says, that from the physics standpoint, biological effects
    from mobile phones are "somewhere between impossible and implausible."

    "At the same time, Moulder supports further studies into the science of cell phone
    radiation. "Some people think the power emitted by the phones is so low, it's a
    silly thing to research. But I think it remains a legitimate area of study.""

    And yes, I think Mr Moulder is looking for research money too.

    Try this simple experiment.

    1) look far left
    2) look far right
    3) hold cell phone to ear
    4) look far left
    5) look far right

    Notice the huge restriction? Yes, you can still swivel
    your head just as far to the cell phone side but it takes
    a very concious effort to do so and is rather awkward.
    People driving and talking on a cell held to the ear pretty
    much cut off at least a 3rd of what they are normally
    looking at/paying attention to. Then there is the natural
    tendency to not drop the cell phone when both hands
    and or attention to that direction are needed in short
    order.

    The lack of attention is a factor in both cases but the
    physical restriction is a huge factor in itself.

    But you don't need a SUV to get 4WD. Unless you're a cop wannabe or some
    shit like that.

    So next, the law will be written that you can't talk to a passenger in the
    car with you?
    Cell phone with a hands free, is no worse than traveling down the road with
    other occupants in the car gabbing away.

    Occupants know when to shut up and let you drive. A cell phone doesn't.

    This is not true.

    The person(s) in the car with you have the same situational
    awareness that you do. For example when you are craning
    to see if you can get over 2 lanes on a busy freeway or pull
    out onto a very busy street the person in the car is likely to
    pause in the conversation than someone on the other end of
    the phone. I've noticed that my passengers often stop talking
    in mid sentence/word when I get into a tight situation or it
    looks like we're going to crash.

    At best. A lot of people don't pay attention to traffic at all for
    large parts of the conversation.

    Sure it is. 1) You're used to concentrating almost all of your
    attention on phone conversations. 2) A passenger who's paying
    attention to traffic can warn you about traffic changes if your
    attention wanders.

    People over using the SUV thing makes me want to puke. Can you people
    POSSIBLY find something more ridiculous to bitch about? It just sounds very
    gay, you don't want to be gay do you? Then stop bitching about SUV's.

    Sounds good to me, as long as the passenger can't talk to me, either.
    Passengers suck.

    I'd tend to guess most people don't understand the difference between
    ionizing and non-ionizing radiation.

    Passengers who suck is a good thing, providing that they are female.

    Passengers who suck may be good things, but they still cause a lot of
    accidents.

    They may know, that doesn't necessarily mean they'll shut up..! Come on my
    bus when the schools are chucking out, 80 screaming kids are a damn sight
    more distracting than any phone call..!
