Use the phone in your car? Use OnStar or an entertainment system like Ford’s Sync while driving? Not if Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood has his way. He’s mulling a ban on all of that and even on hands free phone devices. A public used to such things doesn’t matter. Don’t forget, the way the government overrides public opinion is to deny states funds for highway construction, which is what they did to boost drunk driving limits and seatbelt use.
