Well it wasn't very long until I couldn't take it anymore. I've already unlocked, rooted, and added CM12 to my phone. A few things I couldn't live with. All the white backgrounds and the fact that I needed Wi-Fi tethering enabled. So I am enjoying all the new freedoms that I've enjoyed on my last phone again.

An average truck driver spend 12 to 14 hours in command of his vehicle, whether it be driving it, or loading/unloading it, and is a very difficult job to preform. Every day is measured a success when the vehicle is parked at a safe location. These individuals have to have a semblance of a life as well. These avenues of distraction that are so deadly, are also the means needed to stay in contact with, dispatching, family, and the rest of their needs. Take yourself and measure how often you are on the phone or communicating one way or another all day long. Are you on the phone at work? Why? Are you on the phone with your kids? Why? Are you on the phone with doctor appointments and daily life needs such as that? Why? All these answers for why, are the same reason that truck drivers are on the phones. They need it like you need it. But in their routine of being held behind a wheel, if they waited for their rest break, which is usually after the rest of the world has gone to bed, they wouldn't be able to get these things done. Also if you think about it...distracted driving is anything that takes your attention off the road. Like a radio station, a conversation with a passenger, a cigarette lighter or even an external event like a billboard. So I say to you , is it the distraction, the phone....or the person? Should we ban passengers in cars? Radios and cigarette smoking? Should we ban billboards and that guy outside 'Subway' spinning his sign? No we need to be better drivers.....all of us. If it weren't the cellphone it would be something else. Thanks for reading my thoughts, I am an ex truck driver of 22 years and am now working in the safety department of a trucking company. It isn't easy addressing these problems. We are safer as an industry then it has been since the 80's and cell phones have only been dominant tools since the last 10 years and we have come a long way at understanding. Ultimately the responsibility is upon the individual. 
The federal government restricts the use of all hand-held mobile devices by drivers of commercial motor vehicles (CMVs). A mounted phone is …
