Some in the automotive crash investigation field believe the driver can act as if they were approximately a .10 BAC while on the cell phone. In the state of Texas, you have to be 18 or older to do that. It's illegal to use your cellphone if you're 16 or 17 and already have a license.

They tell us that you are more likely to be in a collision while driving with a cell phone conversation going on, than driving while intoxicated. Pull over.

You should always have your cell phone with you but you shouldn't ever talk or text while driving. If someone does call you, you should ignore it until you arrive at your destination

No one should use cell phones while driving. Cell phone use while driving has been shown to cause as many accidents as drunk driving, even when hands-free devices are used. Texting while driving is even worse.

Talking on a cell phone while driving is the equivalent of having a blood alcohol content of .08. In Michigan, a BAC of .08 is the drunk driving limit. So, basically, talking on a cell phone while driving has very similar effect to driving while drunk.

Distraction is something that takes your attention off what you should be doing. Cell phone use while driving distracts you from paying attention to the road while driving.

Even though many people don't want talking on your cell phone while driving to be illegal, it should be because you cannot focus on driving as much as you would if you weren't talking. Serious accidents can happen even when you take your attention off of the road for a few seconds.

In the interest of road safety - as little as possible. Use handsfree or a headset if you have to answer a call.

Many states have bills in progress to outlaw hands on cell phone talking and texting. That is because there is a linkage to increased accidents and deaths while driving using a cell phone. There is a study that concludes that cell phone use reduces your skills just as driving while under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
