I had started off this blog posting as a rant about North Carolina passing a law which requires the use of handsfree devices on July 1st. I was going to drone on about how manual-transmission car owners should be required to keep both hands of the wheel as well ;)
As I started researching the law to see who would have passed such a thing, I turn up an article claiming that it was an email HOAX!
If you are in NC, hopefully this will help you out as I was fooled up until this point as well.
