NTSB recommends full ban on use of cell phones while driving

The National Traffic Safety Board has come out with a recommendation that the use of hand-held cell phones while driving be made a federal offense.

I think that's a great idea. Connecticut already has the ban but it is widely ignored--to the peril of other motorists.

If the state or federal government is really interested in safety and law enforcement then the stakes must be raised.

Instead of fining people a hundred bucks for using cell phones for calls or texting, make the fines in the thousands. If you were to do that you'd see people responding more.
