Chilling erosion of personal freedoms

DOES Mrs Thornton of Whitby (YEP, December 31) have nothing better to do than to demand we place ever greater needless restrictions on what people can and can't do?

Stop people smoking when driving, stop them eating, stop them changing the radio station.

If you really want to deal with distracted drivers, how about banning children in cars?

There are already many laws to cater for poor driving and there is absolutely no need for the granular, vindictive persecution of people who just happen to have perfectly legal habits you disagree with.

The last 20 years have seen personal freedoms in this country almost obliterated. Will you, and those like you, please just leave people alone to mind their own business?
