Fresh off the realization that I've been an irresponsible smartphone user recently (yes, I checked my e-mail while driving across the Golden Gate bridge) I have gotten wind of authorities in Europe cracking down on people that talk and drive.

According to the Telegraph, drivers caught using a hand-held mobile phone while driving could be jailed for two years under tough new guidelines in the UK. Even more extreme, drivers who "adjust sat-navs, tinker with MP3 music players such as iPods or send text messages at the wheel could also face prison sentences."

What do you think of the regulations? Would you support such a law locally?
