Group: Ban Cell Phone Use While Driving Nationwide
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.

How about banning passengers with cell phones!
Well of course it does. Imagine the revenue that would be lost just from the lack of airtime involved in people making calls while in their car. This is considered down-time for most and a good time to catch up with a friend, check in on a relative, or maybe call home with some dinner prep instructions, while you're sitting in traffic. Never mind maybe a necessary call to check directions, or alert daycare you are on your way. Then of course, there is the loss of revenue from Bluetooth devices. Although they are nice to use when you are home, jabbering away while you fold clothes, they really are intend...
