"The argument I hear again and again (most recently when I sat in on Donnybrook) is that banning cell phones while driving is about safety. However, Missourinet reports that this year, traffic fatalities are headed for a 62-year low. The same trend is seen on the national level. Fatality, injury, and crash rates have all declined substantially since 1990. If fatalities, crashes, and injuries are down, then I hardly think that we are experiencing a 'national hazard' that warrants an outright ban on cell phone use while driving." (12/19/11)
