The National Safety Council has suggested that the use of mobile phones while driving be banned across the entire U.S. The group cited a Harvard study which holds cell phones responsible for 6% -- or 636,000 -- crashes, leading to 2,600 deaths annually. The group says 23 states have enacted some form of cell phone restriction, but they can still be used in cars. The NSC wants the use of cell phones in cars to be banned completely, meaning that drivers can't make phone calls een with hands-free systems, surf the Internet or send SMS messages while driving. The CTIA trade group, which represents the wireless companies, disagrees with the NSC's position.
