Governator to Sign Automotive Celly Ban

Ahnuld is set to sign a ban that bans use of a cellular phone while driving unless one's using a hands-free device. Scheduled to go into effect July 1, 2008, the ban carries penalties of $20 for the first offense and $50 for each infraction thereafter. No word as to whether the Gov'll come by your house and do you like he did the T-X if you don't pay up. [Thanks to Bumbeck for the tip.]
