Not that a whole host of other things while driving shouldn't be illegal either, like a) doing one's makeup, b) talking to a passenger or c) getting little Johnny to stop hitting little Jane in the backseat of the car, but using a cellphone without a handsfree device while driving became against the law as of February 1, 2010 for drivers in British Columbia. To some, the laws are apparently meant to be broken. Or simply ignored.
During my last move I relied on my little pod of an S2000 as my moving van. Whoever thinks a 2-seater is impractical should have seen what I squirreled away in this thing. I transported: 2 suitcases full of personal effects, a full size sleeping foam, pots and pans, a knapsack, coffee maker, towels, winter jacket, double size inflatable airbed, blanket, pillows, laptop computer... everything that I'd need to live out of my car in comfort and style. And I could still see out of my rearview and side mirrors. Good thing I didn't have a passenger.
