We’ve all seen it. Those drivers veering into our lane, sitting through a green light, just plain not paying attention. When you drive up next to them, you notice that they’re on a cell phone.
A national safety group is urging states to stop making laws banning them. The Governors Highway Safety Association is telling 41 states, including Virginia, that there just isn’t enough evidence right now that banning cell phones from behind the wheel is keeping you safe out on the roads.
With two children Sarah Williamson lives behind the wheel of her car, so she has seen plenty distracted driving. One look inside her car and you’ll see her cell phone is close by her too, but she said she takes using it very seriously.
“I will end a phone call if I feel like I’m in rough spot,” Williamson explained.
