N.J. drivers: Prepare to phone hands-free
(Mitch Lipla, Philadelphia Inquirer)

In an attempt to hang up on the common practice of steering and talking on handheld cell phones, New Jersey’s Assembly voted yesterday to ban the practice, more than a year after the state Senate passed the ban.

Fines would range from $100 to $250, with no points assessed on drivers’ records.

Drivers could talk on cell phones only if they used a hands-free device such as a headset.

Of course, I’m still driving in NJ a lot. I guess it is time to buy that Handsfree kit. Palm One hasn’t come out with an “official” one for the Treo 600 yet, but judging from a quick google search it looks like there are a couple of 3rd party ones.

Not at the top of my “want to purchase” list, but I’ll get to it eventually. Hopefully before I get a ticket for talking on the phone while driving. :-)
