You know things are getting crazy out there when states start considering legislation against playing games while driving. Wisconsin is the latest to bring up the matter.
Now, I don’t know if anyone has yet been seen playing a computer or console while driving, but it wouldn’t surprise me. There is no limit to human stupidity.
In New York state, it is illegal to use a cell phone while driving. No one seems to be paying attention to that, from what I see every day. It’s only one step from that to a PSP or DS, or even a laptop.
Of course, the real question is whether such a law, if passed, would really do any good. While there are certainly plenty of idiots behind the wheel, my guess is that only a very small percentage would do something so moronic. Then again, it only takes one jerk to cause an accident.
The proposed law, by the way, covers more than gaming; it includes watching movies while driving, too. I can see more people doing that than playing games. I bet some are doing it already.
There are times I think we should have stayed in the trees. Life would be a lot simpler.
