My city just instituted a cell-phone ban while driving. Which I think is the stupidest thing evah. One, why single out talking on a cell phone as something that causes distracted driving? Having other people in the car is a distraction. Having the radio on too loud is too. Having kids in the car is distracting (moms definitely know this one).
Then I read this study that basically says the same thing. It says if someone is going to get distracted, they will regardless of what their behavior is. Just because it's something you think you can legislate, doesn't make the problem go away.
And, oh yah, my city doesn't really enforce the 'law' against running red lights, which, I think is more important than curbing cell phone usage.Grrrr
