A Salem lawmaker says Oregon’s law preventing use of a mobile device while driving isn't specific enough.   Salem Republican Vicki Berger points to a recent fatal accident in Salem; a man allegedly texting while driving, hitting a pedestrian:  “Maybe we didn’t make it explicit enough, that this is unacceptable.” Current law makes use of a handheld mobile device while driving illegal, but provides exceptions for people who are on the job. But Berger says there are legitimate reasons for talking on a phone while driving.  But there's no reason to text. “Such terrible danger. We need to just say ‘Don’t do it- it’s against the law,’ says Berger. The proposal is being drafted now.
