Nobody should be allowed to
use cell phones whale driving. Have a message on phone that is automatic saying driving will call back as soon as it is safe.

I do not know if laws banning the use of hand held phones or the outright prohibition of mobile phones while driving will do any good. I do know people will continue to use phones, regardless of the laws. I also know that people, in general, do not pay close enough attention while they drive. If its not a cell phone, its the stereo, a book, a burger, a latte', or the baby in the back. When the teen took my aunt's life in this story, he broke a number of laws doing it. Why would another law fix things? It might reduce accidents by a few, and those lives are valuable, but what should really happen is a change in people's attitudes. The car is designed to get you from one place to another. You must focus on its main purpose. You must get over yourself and think about how your actions affect others. My cousin is without her mom, not because of a cell phone, but because the individual driving that car really didn't care about anyone else but himself at that moment.
