Everywhere I go, people are talking about Battle Creek's ban on holding cell phones while driving.  Driving while holding a cellphone will be illegal beginning Friday in Battle Creek.

According to WILX-New 10, Your Breaking News and Weather Authority, Police Chief Jim Blocker says the ordinance is an opportunity to educate the public about the dangers of distracted driving.

Exceptions to the new ordinance include holding a phone while reporting crimes, road hazards and emergencies.

How do you feel about this new ordinance?   This really does send a very strong message to all of our listeners and those of you reading this post.  We will talk about this during our morning show on Friday with Danny and Monica in the morning.  Please join us and let us know what you think.
