Table scraps

Posted at 12:53 PM on March 30, 2007 by Bob Collins (3 Comments)

Various items on the table...

** Did a cop somewhere pull over an ambulance because the driver was wearing a set of headphones? I see that the Senate Transportation Committee approved a bill -- SF1148 -- from Sen. Betsy Wergin yesterday that makes it allowable for ambulance drivers to wear headphones. It's illegal now since they're motor vehicle operators and we can't wear them. So I can see the need, I guess, to be technical about it. But it makes me wonder whether somewhere... sometime, some ambulance on the way to somewhere got pulled over because the driver wasn't paying attention to the patient while rotting his brain with that satanic rock 'n roll music.

** Another bill passed yesterday, from Sen. Tom Neuville, is aimed to you, you 20-somethings, cruising around town with all your peeps. From now on, if the bill becomes law, a driver under 20 can have only one person under 20 in the car with him/her.

If you were to ask my Dad, when I was 16-18, it was already a law. But his version was no one in the car with me.

I think Sen Neuville will have a hard time getting it passed, if it was 16,17 maybe, but any thing over 18 will be a real hard sell to most of the public (at least the college students that have a lot of time on their hands).

WOW. Neuville is so out of touch with what it is like to be that age! What about car pooling to a school with very limited parking spaces? Students car pool everywhere together- the mall, sporting events, the library... Young adults- 18-20 especially- should NOT be treated like second class citizens.
