They give more tickets now for using handheld devices in Maui than any other traffic offense. It's not just cells, looking for music in your IPod, playing video games, watching TV on your tablet all have been ticketed here.

I know the right will deny this--but in California the decline of driving ability is due to two things that stem from the efforts of Howard Jarvis (proposition 13). First, there is no longer driver's education as part of high school curriculum. My daughters got much poorer instruction from private firms than I got when I was 16.

Second, the constant cut backs in local government funding means fewer cops--the largest expense in most local governments. It means that people run stop signs and yak on their cell phones with impunity. Libertarians have assured that people have the liberty to kill school kids because of inattention. Not an exaggerations, happened to one of our school kids.
