New Zealand Makes Cell Phone Use Illegal in Vehicles *UPDATE*


New Zealand just made pretty much all cell phone use illegal while driving vehicles. That includes using your phone as an MP3 player or using it as GPS.

Ouch! I don't know what I'd do without being able to use my phone's GPS while driving. That and playing music are the two things I do almost daily. Let's hope the trend doesn't catch on here in the US.

Turns out they have decided to allow GPS and music on cellphones as long as they are "mounted in the vehicle and are manipulated infrequently."
