Should Cell Phone Use Be Banned While Driving? Take Our Poll

The National Transportation Safety Board has called for a complete ban on cell phone use while driving. Do you agree?

Is it time to ban cell phone use -- all cell phone use, including hands-free devices -- while driving? The National Transportation Safety Board says yes. The reason? After years spent investigating distracted-driver accidents, the board has found that even hands-free devices are risky on the road, the New York Times reports.

For many moms, it's a tough call. We want our kids to be safe above all else -- but we're repeat offenders when it comes to driving while distracted, relying on our mobile devices for everything from GPS directions to the afternoon playdate to frantic "are-you-picking-up-Johnny-or-am-I?" calls to our spouses. (And that's on top of the other distractions in the car -- fighting in the backseat, overturned sippy cups and Legos lost between seat cushions -- that cause us to take our eyes off the road.)

Currently, nine states ban hand-held phones while driving, and 35 ban texting while driving. But the NTSB's called-for ban is a non-binding resolution -- meaning that no state has to actually adopt it. Do you think it should be passed into law? Take our poll!
