There's one thing I don't understand here. Why only the new drivers? Sure, I get it they are not experienced but that doesn't make experienced drivers any less dangerous. Hands-on cell phones shouldn't be used at all while driving.

Thank you for a little less freedom.

Big Brother.  The government is over stepping it's bounds.  Remember government works for the people... not for harrassing the people.  By far and large the people use cars and cell phones repsonsibly.  Don't become our nannies.
