I understand the texting and hand held phones. What I don't understand is the units you don't hold in your hand... Next thing they won't allow passengers in the car!!!

I applaud the decision for the ban.........what did you people do before cell phones?say 1995...you either stopped at a pay phone or waited till you got home....come on people,when you get behind the wheel of 2 tons of moving steel,you need to be driving and concentrating on the vehicle you are supposed to be in 100% control of, which you can not do while texting,typing,dialing and talking!
