Cell Phones Continue To Drive Some Off the Road

"It is a sight that one sees seemingly everywhere, from neighborhood streets to busy highways to bumper-to-bumper traffic jams: drivers taking their eyes off the road and hands off the wheel to use their cell phones . This dangerous activity has become commonplace, but attempts to address the issue remain controversial.

A number of states have passed laws banning the use of traditional cell phones on their roadways, and vendors have also developed an ever-increasing array of hands-free models designed to let drivers keep their hands on the steering wheel as they converse. Despite these initiatives, the problems created by cell phone usage while driving remain, and some say the only viable solution is banning use of the devices on the roads altogether."
