At last, cell phone companies are finally admitting that cell phone abuse is a danger to users and other non users.

This should open the door to overturn the FCC ban on owning and using cell phone jammers in business and homes and schools and churches and pubic meetings. This abuse applies to adults as well as minor children so they deserve the same treatment as young drivers. It shouldn't be an age issue, its a cell phone use issue.

Gonna buy me a jammer, a big one or two or three.

My only concern about this is that the software can't distinguish between driving a moving vehicle or riding in a moving vehicle. I am against texting while driving, and I would only do it while I am stopped at a red light and can see that it won't go green for a while. However, being able to text while in a car can be useful, if done by a passenger.
