I read an article in the New York Times today that was talking about how more and more people are buying special devices to stop themselves from using their cell phones while driving. To me, this seems incredibly stupid. Where has will power gone? I don’t see how it’s so hard to have some discipline, especially when it concerns something as dangerous as using a cell phone when on the road.

Frankly, it’s embarrassing that some people are so dependent on technology that they need to depend on other technological innovations to prevent them from endangering themselves.
