"Citing concern over 'distracted driving,' the National Transportation Safety Board called on all states to ban on cell phone use and texting while driving.  CEI experts called such a ban unnecessary and intrusive. 'Police already have more than enough reasons to stop cars,' said Sam Kazman, CEI General Counsel.  'Absent hard evidence that a cell phone ban would improve traffic safety, NTSB has no business recommending such a ban.'"
