A federal agency on Tuesday called for a ban on all cellphone use by drivers — the most far-reaching such recommendation to date — saying its decision was based on a decade of investigations into distraction-related accidents, as well as growing concerns that powerful mobile devices are giving drivers even more reasons to look away from the road.
The problems with getting this done are the overall pervasiveness and seduction of the damn things. Its so easy to get a call, take it and suddenly your a million miles away from behind the wheel of a 3 ton projectile going 70 MPH. I hate seeing other drivers with a phone up to their ear and yet I find myself doing it as well.
Google (!) (?) is working on it.
