phone while driving? I myself do not think it is safe to drive and talk. I believe if need to call someone, then pull over and stop , then call whoever. People's attention are not on the road and what they are doing when they are talking on the cell phone. Does anyone agree? Please give your opinion.

It issafe to that extent as long as u have ur eyes on the road.. But I think most of the time, its not safe.. Its better to slow down and drive in the slowest lane or just stop the car and then talk on the phone.. I always slow my car whenevr I am taking on my phone.. It reduces the risk of hitting some one bang on...

More and more accidents are happening because people pay less attention on the roads while driving and more on their talk on the phone. I think it should be absolutely banned to talk on the phone while driving and strict punishment imposed for those breaking this rule.

No, it is not safe to talk on the phone or do anything else but drive when you are driving. People do all kinds of dumb things when they are driving and that is why there are so many accidents. I think that people should have to pass a common sense test before recieving their license.

I agree with you, it is unsafe to drive while talking to somebody over the phone. Driving needs concentration in order to be safe. When you need to make a call, you should pull over, stop and then make a call.

Are you kidding???? It absolutely should be illegal to talk on the phone while driving except in the case of real emergency, and even then it should be required to pull of the road if at all possible! I drive a standard 5-speed car so I can't talk on the phone while driving even if I wanted to but I wouldn't anyway. There are some other things people also shouldn't do while driving such as putting on make-up and shaving...yes, I've actually seen men shaving while driving on the interstate and that's ridiculous. We can never know how many accidents are caused by this type of careless and unnecessary behavior but I'm sure it's a high number. Annie
