Yes. Our city just passed a law, but no one really is paying attention yet. Maybe when the fines start. I was just reading this:
April 30th is No Phone Zone Day and I hope that you will sign the pledge. Driving while distracted is even more dangerous than driving while drinking or when tired. As a parent, as a daughter and as a wife, I cannot endanger my life and the lives of others on the road by driving while distracted. I admit it is difficult not to check my email or answer the phone when it rings or when I am at a stop light. But the danger outweighs the benefits. Nearly 6000 people die annually as a result of distracted driving! On any given day in 2008, 800,000 vehicles were driven by people using handheld cellphones.
I know I'm WAY more distracted when talking, and I think other people are too. I know it helps pass the time when on a long drive, but when lives are at stake, it's just not worth it.
