There is a new bill that would expand Maine's distracted driving laws by banning the use of hand-held cellphones while driving. To me, the surprising part was the bill had little opposition at a public hearing. The bill is written with a bunch of exemptions, like police. Maybe too many exemptions.
We've all done it, called someone by mistake on our cellphones. You hit the wrong button at the wrong time and before you know it someone in your contact list gets an unexpected call and you don't even know it. Some people call it pocket-dialing or 'butt-dialing.'
Unless you've used your monthly minutes, there's usually no harm in letting a stranger borrow your cellphone for a quick call. There's usually no harm, but internet prankster Andrew Hales plays off this social generosity in his latest video.
