Legislature Hearing Proposed Bill to Ban Using Cell Phones in Vehicles

Should cell phone use be banned in cars? The Legislature's Transportation and Telecommunications committee is looking into that. They're hearing a bill that proposes restricting the use of mobile phones by drivers.

A government report three years ago showed drivers using cell phones are four times more likely to have an accident. However, lawmakers in many states have been unsuccessful in passing legislation banning the use of cell phones while driving.
