Should All Use of Cell Phones While Driving Be Banned?

Hosted by

Some proportion of American drivers think it's up to them to decide if they can text, tweet or talk on a cell phone while they're behind the wheel.  Now, after investigating numerous crashes, the National Transportation Safety Board says that talking on wireless head sets while driving a car is just as dangerous as holding the phone to the ear, and that all states should ban all cell phone use except during emergencies.
