Ban cell phone use while driving?

Email News Alerts

The vast majority of cell phone owners who safely use them while driving have a right to be upset about a federal push to make everybody "hang up and drive."


The government should not punish all motorists for the bad driving of a few: Instead of a blanket ban on cell phone use by all drivers, it would make more sense to target those who can't seem to safely drive and talk on the phone at the same time. They should be cited by police for inattentive driving.
