Time to ban all use of cellphones behind wheel

Texting while driving is not just an epidemic among teenagers (“Teen texting behind wheel common, study finds,” Page A1, June 8). Adult drivers appear to be more focused on their cellphones than on the road.

Our Legislature must do something about this. I would advocate for a complete ban of any cellphone use while driving. If you are on the phone, or texting, or glancing at e-mail, your attention is not on the road. Driving on public roads is a tremendous responsibility and deserves the driver’s full attention.
