(The person using the phone is the responsible one) Same thing with the mobile phone companies. And with most service providers providing flat-rates, they aren't even motivated to get more people to call by having everybody talking on their phone whilst filling 'er up. Oh, I get it, phone users don't want to be inhibited in their use of the cell phone while tanking. So they're covering up the danger. Now I get it. Not.

If you look at the billions of gallons of gasoline sold in that time period and take a wild guess at the stats it could be in the neighborhood of .0000001% . Not a problem. But if it's you or your wife and kids in that small insignificant % than its a huge problem. Just saying.
