A person can only think about one thing at a time. People multitask by alternating their attention from one task to another. Safe driving requires 100% attention.

No cell phones while driving. Too many distractions. Oh, by the way, watch out, Gant Towing will tell you to park, after you park, they call for a tow truck and try and tow your vehicle. If you pay them cash, they won't tow your vehicle! It's a scam, they made a bundle last weekend at Riverbend. Police are aware. BBB contacted, they don't tow after you pay, but they won't give you your $ back. They also damage your vehicle trying to get it out of the parking spot they told you to park in!

When 80% of vehicle accidents are caused by distractions, and cell phone use when driving is compared to DUI, it is a stupid question. There should be a law as harsh as the DUI laws against using the cell phone or texting while driving.

Driving and using a cell phone is a clear and present danger to everyone on the road.

Talking on the phone is no more distracting than talking to a passenger "IF" you have bluetooth hands free capability on your vehicle and keep both hands on the wheel and eyes on the road. A person who can't do this simple task needs to be re-evaluated to verify they are capable of driving. This requires no more skill than safely merging into freeway traffic .
