Safety zealot hid a phone jammer in his SUV to stop other drivers taking calls

Is this guy likely a lefty or a conservative?  What’s your take, and why?

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.

    • I’m going with conservative. A lefty would want it made a federal hanging offence, complete with SWAT teams.

      But there are a lot of conservatives who want to impose their version of “the law” on other people, too.

      BTW, the cellphone hysteria is mostly bullshit:

      Distracted driving – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

      Accident risk assessment:

      In 2011, Shutko and Tijerina reviewed a large naturalistic study of in field operational tests on cars, heavy product vehicles, and commercial vehicles and buses and concluded that:

      Most of the collisions and near misses that occur involve inattention as a contributing factor.

      Visual inattention (looking away from the road ahead) is the single most significant factor contributing to crash and near crash involvement.

      Cognitive distraction associated with listening to, or talking on, a handheld or hands-free device is associated with crashes and near miss events to a lesser extent than is commonly believed, and such distractions may even enhance safety in some instances.[24]

      • I’m sticking with what I’ve been saying for years: I don’t care if you talk on the phone while driving. Don’t care if you’re drunk, don’t care if you’re putting on makeup, don’t care if you’re receiving oral sex while driving. If you get into or cause an accident, I don’t care what your problem was. If you manage to drive and not cause an accident or excessively inconvenience anyone else, I don’t care if you’re drunkenly talking on the phone while receiving oral sex.
