The short form of the reasoning is "We need to lead by example"... Your thoughts?

I like cellphones but I dont use them when I am driving usuually if I do use them I usually use thme when I am stopped at a light. I dont want to get in a wreck due to my cellphone. I think it would not be good to be in an accident if you said you were on your phone or somebody saw you it would be bad fro you.

I'd never make a call while driving,and if my phone rang while I was driving,I'd have a passenger answer it,or if I was alone,I'd wait until I got to my destination if I was close,or maybe stop,given the opportunity.. Thanks for the response!

There are already existing law that prohibits using cellphone while driving? It's just a matter of implimentation.

Here in the UK,using a cellphone handheld is illegal while driving.We can however make use of handsfree devices for cellphones such as bluetooth headsets.The US,with the different laws applying to different states,the situation can change depending on which state You happen to be in. This isn't a Law that is being brought in-this is the National body that oversees and investigates US Air Crashes and road traffic collisions among other incidents..but the fact this body is taking the subject of cellphones so seriously as to ban it's investigators and employees on the road from using them may be a step towards a Law..
