Roads without Cell Phones

It's hard to imagine, considering the number of people I pass on a daily basis who are driving and talking on the phone.  Today, I asked a group of folks - all daily commuters - to raise a hand if they'd never used a cell phone while driving.  Not one hand (including mine) went up.

Is talking on a phone while driving more dangerous?  Sure.  Are some people better at it than others?  Yes.  But the interesting question here is whether the government can outlaw an action that we're already used to living with - and more than 80 percent of Americans say they've done.

Could you drive without EVER using the phone?
