Driving unplugged

Susan Bamford is graphics editor for Automotive News
Technology is amazing. Smart phones, iPhones, navigation systems, satellite radios. I can stay connected to my children, work and catch up with the entire world no matter where I am.

New law: No texting while driving. Hurrah! A chance for me to unplug. A legal reason to put away my phone.

Now I can roll down my car windows and enjoy my drive and the fresh air.
