One of the latest things is that behavior that is common is made illegal
People wanting to talk on the phone while driving is a fact of life. Talking on the phone for driving is just one of many behaviors that are distracting drivers while they are driving down the road. The UK is apparently jumping on the bandwagon for banning talking on the phone for driving, and not only doing that but imposing excessive penalties. That pattern is very common in the US, and there seems to be no way to stop it. If you oppose it, you are then on the side of doing bad things. These sorts of moves are unstoppable, and they result in atrocities. I can't figure out how we will be rescued from this sort of thing. I can foresee it only getting worse. Some massive societal change would be required to restore sanity.
