Study: Parents Favor Cell Phone Ban Nationwide

Yahoo! Shine reports, “Note to road warriors who try to work during their commute: You may have to find another time for that conference call. Last week, the National Transportation and Safety Board recommended that states should ban all cell phone use by drivers — including talking on speakerphone, using a hands-free device, and texting — in order to minimize distractions. And it turns out that plenty of people agree with them.

According to a new poll by, 58 percent of respondents would support such a ban,” including “67 percent of about-to-be parents and 54 percent of respondents with kids.”

Many cities and towns in the greater Chicago area already have cell phone bans in place and are working to pass bans on all “distracted driving” behaviors. That said, many people in Chicagoland as well as respondents to the survey wonder if all “distracted driving” behaviors can be defined or effectively be banned.

Other individuals feel that public service announcements and increased education about distracted driving hazards will be more practical and efficient than bans on cell phone use or distracted driving behaviors.

Additionally, often times the most effective way to prevent cell phone use and distracted driving is beyond legislation and PSA’s – personal experience with a “near-miss” or car accident often provides a necessary wake up call to drivers, passengers, or those effected by car accident casualties.

Our Chicago car accident lawyers know that distracted driving is dangerous and that it causes accidents and even death. To avoid being involved in a Chicago car crash, keep your eyes on the road and your hands on the wheel at all times. If you have been injured in a car accident caused by distracted driving or other negligence, contact a Chicago car accident lawyer right away.
