The house should enforce a federal law that would prevent drivers from using their cell phones while driving. This is dangerous and has led to many traffic fatalities. It should become a mandatory law tied to federal highway funding. This will make the states fall in line and pass the law.
Unless a hands-free device is used in vehicles, cell phones should only be used in an emergency situation. The key to cell phone usage in vehicles is to have both hands free so drivers can pay attention and drive. Having a hand on a phone can be dangerous when a driver is distracted.
It might be fine to use hands free devices in the car although that still is not the best thing. But there definitely needs to be a clear set of rules that absolutely bans texting and use of a phone in the hand. Then everyone would know exactly what was required and we would have less accidents.
No, the house should not take a stance on the use of cell phones in cars, because each state should be able to make their own policy. There is nothing so compelling about using a cell phone in a car that there needs to be a national law about it. Each state should decide the issue for themselves.
The House should not take a stance on the use of cell phones in cars. This is because I feel that another law on driving is just a way for the government to profit from the people that disobey the law. I am sure also there will be some exceptions such as allowing police to continue to use their own cell phones and driving crazy.
