All commercial drivers who drive singlehanded while holding the phone in the other hand should be fired.

In most states, tickets for holders of commercial drivers licenses are very punitive. Like 5x the fine on a non-commercial license. That said, some states have a hands-free exception for CDL holders using phones with push to talk feature. E.g. Nextel

Why can’t Uber / lyft give a free phone holder to all their drivers? It drives me crazy when I see these drivers drive like this. It’s just so dangerous and irresponsible.
