Default CB radios, ham radios, and frs.gmrs radios outlawed

It is also fine to use microphones with a locking PTT, you
are allowed to lock a microphone while driving as long as
it is fixed down properly.]



Not in the U.S. you aren't. It is a violation of FCC rules to do so.

So, don't use one in the U.S. of A. I thought that your moan
was about Canada outlawing hand microphones. Is it a violation
of FCC rules to have a spare microphone sat in the vehicle for
when you are in other countries? What about the hands-free
option? Do the FCC outlaw all safety related CB equipment?

Here in Europe, different countries have different standards.
We do have a common standard, 40 channel FM, but each country
may also have additional channels and rules. I can buy a CB
which can do any of the European channels and modes. It is
up to me to ensure that I only use it as allowed in whatever
country I am in. For example, I can only use the UK band
(27.60125 - 27.99125MHz) within the UK. If a European country
says "hands-free only, then that is how I would have to use it
there - even if the required hands-free equipment was illegal
for CB use here in England.
