"We understand that talking on a phone is a distraction while driving, and we encourage cell phone users to use safe behaviors, but changing the radio station, talking with a passenger, or eating a sandwich are worse," said John Walls, a spokesperson for the Cellular Telecommunications Industry Association.

A survey taken showed 85% of todays drivers in the U.S, would like a ban on hand held and hands free cell phone usage while operating a motorized vehicle.

What are your thoughts.

For me, I say YES, i see too many drivers distracted while on the cell phone

I think hands free kits should come already installed in all cars and that it should be law. To many accidents are caused by people on there cell phones

Yup thats the way they did it in the old days! If we were bad, the paddle would come out, and there was nothing like a good slap across the face to bring you to your senses. now days they call it abuse- go figure :P

Oh well the moral of the story is. Do not distract the driver of a car.
