Status Update: More nanny-state on the way

Did you see that Superbowl Chevy Cruze ad where the guy checks his Facebook status while driving? If you really care, here it is:

By the way, you’re welcome GM. It was really tough to put your lame commercial on my blog. But that’s not the point of this post.

Here it is:

  1. First we had laws making it illegal to talk on your handheld cellphone while driving.
  2. Then there were laws making it illegal to text and drive. (Well… duh. I don’t need a law for that.)
  3. And of course, we can’t forget the “don’t listen to your iPod while you cross the street” laws.

So, just wait for the first fool to crash his car while he’s getting the status update that his girlfriend just broke up with him.

Then you’ll see the newest nanny-state law making it illegal to check your status updates while driving. It’ll be the “no surfing while driving” law.

Just remember, you saw the prediction here first.

In the meantime, stay safe. Don’t blog and drive.

  1. No, I’m pretty sure that Facebook somehow is connected with this current WH and, since it already owns GM I’m sure the whole thing was already pre-approved. Another good post. To the point. I like.

    I believe that we desperately need to hear the stories of Ordinary Citizens who make a difference in our lives, our communities and our world.

    Why not be Ordinary?

    Why not make a difference?

    Why not be Ordinary AND make a difference?
