Could Days Talking On Your Cell Phone While Driving Be Numbered?

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.

Cell phones were a popular Christmas gift this year, especially for teenagers. More than 200 million cell phones are now in use in the United States.

Seventy five percent of drivers say they use their cell phones while driving.
