MN Senate Bans Use of Phones in Cars; Unless Wearing Hijab or Scarf

According to the amendment “the use of a scarf or hijab or other items of clothing to hold a device in a hands-free manner” is allowed under the new law.

The Republican-led Minnesota Senate yesterday passed a bill (HF 50) to ban cell phone use in vehicles without a hands-free device. This bill previously passed overwhelmingly in the Minnesota House. The bill aims to solve the problem of distracted driving according to its authors. But main opposition to the hands-free bill asserts that distracted driving is already illegal and that the bill would not solve the underlying problem.

An interesting amendment authored by Bobby Joe Champion (DFL – Minneapolis) added language that provided an additional exception to using a phone while driving a vehicle. According to the amendment “the use of a scarf or hijab or other items of clothing to hold a device in a hands-free manner” is allowed under the new law.

The Muslim women who wear hijabs do exactly that. They stick the phone by their ear in the hijab to remain 'hands free'. So what?



The new cars I've seen come with technology that allows drivers to talk hands free, but stops the operator from texting while driving.

I have to ask. How does one dial a phone number with the phone is stuck inside your hijab, Or answer it? Would that not require the use of hands? Or isn't that distracting?

Just how far are some people prepared to go to cheer lead for the enemy within ?
