I'm all for a law that bans texting while operating a moving vehicle. All for it. (i.e. you can do it in a car, as long as you're either at a stoplight or stopsign, or pulled over). Its incredibly dangerous, and takes 95% of the attention of the driver away from driving. However, to go as far as banning all cellphone use in cars? Way, way too far. Cellphones have gone beyond just the talk and text that they were in the past. Now, they're also music players as well as GPS devices, among others that might not be relevant to driving. Too many important things are on a phone that would impact the efficiency of driving by eliminating ALL use in cars, that it doesn't make sense to do so. Plus, if you eliminate all use in cars, including talking (and hands free), then shouldn't that also carry over to CB radio? You can't tell me emergency responders aren't distracted when talking on those. How about the industries that have grown BECAUSE they're able to be on call, answer their phone, and quickly get on site for an appointment (taxis, repair, maintenance, sales, realtors, etc)? Those industries would be severely hurt by passing a law like this.
