Governor Schwarzenegger’s Wife a Scoff law?

October 25th, 2009

Celebrity and entertainment website TMZ.com recently posted pictures depicting California’s First Lady Maria Shriver twice breaking California’s law against using a hand held cell phone while driving.

Marie Shriver’s husband Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger signed off in 2008 on the law that requires all California drivers to use hands free mobile phones while driving.

The law is one that many, not just Governor Schwarzenegger’s wife, have more honored in the breach than in the observance.  Is a law that is more often broken than observed really a good law at all?  California drivers can do just about anything else possible, and legally, while driving.

There does not appear to be a ground swell for support for changing the law prohibiting cell phone use while driving.  Governor Schwarzenegger promised swift action in response to his wife’s law violations, and the California First lady has apologized.
