Ok, off my soap box now.
That's pretty much what they are doing. They are banning any use of a handheld device. Anything you can hold in your hand while driving- like a cellphone, blackberry, portable GPS- will be banned. It's a good start for sure, but I agree, people need to smarten up and pay attention. There is no reason to be eating cereal and driving at the same time!

I work long hours but I find knitting relaxes me. On days when I don't have to be at work early, I sit and knit for 15 minutes or so before work. I go to a knitting group one night a week when I can. I also visit my Mom at the assisted living and knit while I sit there. That is about it, but you would be surprised how much one can get done just knitting a few minutes here and there.

I too have not masterd the art of knitting while driving. I have thought about it but probably would not live long enought to finish a project!!

Love this site...
I agree that knitting is comforting and relaxing. I don't know what I would do if I didn't have a WIP to pick up when I sit down. It's also saved me from many a boring 'sports' night on t.v.
I'd die of boredom and eat myself to death if my hands didn't have some lovely soft yarn to work thru.

To Knit or not to Knit, that is the question.
