Should calling while driving be banned? Yes it should. Headsets or other "no hands" options should be disallowed too. Driving demands our full attention and then some. Being engaged in a phone conversation while driving is asking for trouble as it diverts the driver's full attention from the road making it more likely for him to miss details of the surrounding traffic that he cannot afford to miss. Only a split second of inattention can mean death not only to the inattentive driver but to others on the road. If you have to use the phone, first get off the road. The alternative is way too risky.
