Default Cell phones while driving. Voice your opinion on it.

I am strongly against it. I get in so many arguements with people about it too. Most people don't agree with me.

I was wondering what everyone thought about it.

It'* not safe in situations where you need to react more quickly and more frequently, like city driving.

I dont while in heavy traffic. If I am on the open road with little or no traffic around, I make all the calls I need to. Of course common sense prevails, if its a hazardous or winding road, NO. I weigh the risks

hehe...well around here I drive in what I would consider heavy traffic, like the high school at dismissal time LOL. and then there are the places like Oklahoma city, I always seem to end up there at rush hour. I dont talk then.
I run my job from the car too...if I had to pull over every time I got a call...my average speed would be 15 miles per hour:(

I use it, even tho I dont like too

Some ppl are good at multitasking, but like any typical male, I focus best on what I am looking at (ie road) so the phone call is usually quick and to the point.

I have used it at length tho one time on the interstate 90 thru NY, kept me company

thats a great point I forgot about! I was on a LONG boring drive a few days ago...90 miles with NOTHING to break up the monotony, I dont usually get sleepy when driving, but I did then...quickly realized it and called my wife to help keep me alert...so it can work the other way around too when its TOO boring

I use it, but never in town (or at least heavy traffic), and ALWAYS on a hands-free.
