    Right now, with my Android HTC Evo, I regularly make calls in my Town Car through Bluetooth and use voice recognition to text even though it's technically illegal. In fact, using voice to text while driving is safer than making calls. And I also use the Google maps traffic feature while I'm driving with clients all the time. Why? Because it's easy and I can do it without looking or thinking about it. If these types of features(including Vlingo) become more common and more advanced with CUE, it's going to HELP with distracted driving.
    As long as there are senators that suggest to run ads to get people to use regular mail more often as a solution to the post office's decline in an age of increasing eletronic mail, we will never have a government or organized oversight commities willing to move with the times. Let's face it, America is behind the times by a good decade when it comes to the rest of the world in a lot of things, Automotive saftey and regulation is one of the more glarring ones. Or we could go deeper than that; we need strict archaic regulation because we license anyone with a heartbeat, to hell with lane disipline or anything resembling responsibility. Get your 40hours of unsupervised time behind the wheel and have at the world. Part of the reason why the country limits itself to 60 or 70mph is because the infascructure is so poor that any faster is dangerous in most areas, but most of the reason is-- people have no idea how to drive fast safely. Now you want to let people drive at those same speeds while distracted? Can't have that.


    /end rant.

    Good point. But people will need to learn to use it the way it should and use it efficiently. Do you know the rotary in Concord, right in front of the prison/correctional facility? Just a couple miles outside of Somerville. Concord Turnpike starts from the east side of it. It's one of the worst intersections or rotarys I've ever seen in my life, especially at rush hour. Some woman in a CRV "merged" in and literally drove right into the passenger door of someone ahead of us lol. If we didn't get through when we did we'd of been sitting in traffic for an hour. Luckily I haven't had to go through it too often. But when I have to go to Somerville from the Rutland MA area I go this way.

    Re: What some Jag owners think of Cadillac's CUE

    I'm a chauffeur. Have been for 15 years. I lived in Billerica and am now in Worcester. I've lived here all my life and have logged about 1.4 million miles in my life...mostly in eastern MA. I see crazy everyday. Although, I will say, the Concord rotary isn't all that bad. The commuters know how to drive it, and other rotaries. The problem with rotaries are when you incorporate people who don't have a clue into them. That's when it gets nuts...

    This woman just...had no clue. My cousin was driving. Good thing he pays attention. Kelly Square in Worcester is never fun. A couple weeks ago it was a parkinglot from BK to 290, while 2 cops an ambulance and a firetruck tried to get through. Glad I rarely go through there anymore.

    I think it was Lewis Black the comedien who made the comment that Linberg flew across the Atlantic without a radio and people today can't walk to the mailbox without a cell phone in their ear. If you think the world will stop if you can't stay connected, give it a try. Betcha the world will keep on turnin'. This connection fetish is a case of technology creating a need, not a need creating technology.

    Not everyone is a bad driver because of texting or talking on the phone. But almost 100% of the people whom I see making mistakes while driving have a phone to their ear or their eyes focused more toward their lap texting.

    Personally, I enjoy the silence when I drive...but then I'm an old fart.....

    ^Lol. Sometimes I drive in the quiet and just listen to the engine, but mostly I listen to CDs (classic rock of course). I can't stand the radio. Tomorrow in MA there's a hearing for two proposed bills, one to outlaw talking on a cell phone while driving and another to outlaw talking on a cell phone while driving in a school zone.

    No one follows the no texting rule. I don't know why they passed that.
