Sat-nav. Whether it be built-in or from a mobile device. Millions of cars have it and yet theres no laws govening the interaction with it while driving. Surely Sat-Nav is just as disracting as any other mobile device while in a vehicle.

My point is on this matter, if a police man/women see's you in a vehicle while driving and tapping on a mobile device, how do they know whether your texting or using the sat-nav?

In utah is still legal to hold your phone during a phonecall while driving. and i have seen some truly idiotic driving by all ageas and races of people here. I feel that people should just plainly be arrested if their caught even holding their phone while driving. its a distraction and its going to kill someone and ruin someones day when you rear end someone because you were busy with your phone.
