Several lawmakers have proposed variations on a cell phone ban for drivers.
One plan would only allow 'hands-free' cell phones while driving. Another idea is to ban cell phone use by drivers younger than 18 who are using restricted licenses. But some experts want a total ban on cell phones for drivers... saying even hands-free models are not safe.
