Re "House votes to ban cell phone use by teen drivers" (Tribune, Feb. 26):
I'm frustrated by many a driver weaving, going too slow and then speeding up, turning too wide with only one hand on the wheel, not signaling before switching lanes and other inattentive moves. Usually it's due to cell phone use while driving. And most of the cell phone-driving offenders, especially on the interstate, are adults, not teens.
So why are our lawmakers so timid to pass a bill that will only lightly slap the hand of offending teenagers and do nothing against adult offenders? With drunken drivers, we rightly don't care about the age; we care about the offense.
