I met a Lady  in her 60's Friday that was in a wreck  recently because a younger driver was looking down texting as the driver slamed  an auto into her auto. The police would not check the other drivers telephone for text messages during the time.

I personally have no need for a cell phone or do I own one.

I do not see the use in getting upset about these preliminary and vague findings.  I think the jury is still out on the the final word.  I rarely use my cell phone, but I do get upset about all the teenagers and others that seem to have the phones growing out of their ears.  Is something that important that it cannot wait?

Barbara, I agree with you to a point. I am a grandmother of three young girls and they each have a cell phone on a family plan and it is for them to use as a safety precaution. They can be in contact with their parents if need be. Limiting the use and not for texting (I hate that). Maybe I am too old now. I do feel like I am becoming my parents.

Maxine, I hate to mention this, but where I live that is all you see is drivers with cell phones talking or texting while driving.   You can always notice by the erratic way some of them drive and miss the traffic lights because their heads are down and focused on the &*%% cell phones.  I am sure that the ACLU won't let a law be enacted to limit this even if it is for the safety of all.

I use my standard cell evey day, but not constantly.  It is not an additional appendage.

I did hear about this on the news.  I have a cell phone but mainly use it for texting. We still have a good old fashioned land line! Wink

I use a cell phone but am not constantly on it as if it's glued to my ear.

I do not have a cell phone, I was given one a few years ago & refused to use it.  If anyone wants to call me, use the land line, if I am gone, leave a message.  When I leave the house to do something, I do not want to be tied to a phone ( heck, at my age, if I wanted to keep something with me 24/7, it would be the bathroom ). There is a time & place for using a phone & it is not at the check out in a store holding up the people in line behind you because you can not chat & write a check at the same time, or at a sit down restaurant where the tables near you can hear your one sided conversation when they are paying for a nice evening out or (I wish the lady who was at the stop light last week facing me could read this) when driving & talking , one is so into  the conversation, their mind is not on driving & they run the red light, when the turn light goes green & their light is still red (I bet all the horns blowing woke her up). I sure was glad there was not an accident. Most of our relatives & people we know have a cell phone, but  I am still a hold out.

I have NEVER had a cell phone, and I don't  want one!  I don't have them for all the reasons stated above.  I kid my husband when we go out for dinner.  I tell him he must have a sign on his back that says...."If you have a cell phone and intend to use it, please sit by me!  I love to hear all your conquests...and speak loudly.....at my age the hearing is nearly gone!"  Funny you should mention the bathroom.  The thing I first make a note of when we go to dinner is....where is the restroom?!
