UK bans drivers from using mobiles

The UK has cracked down on driving with cell phones, but is being criticized for not cracking down on handsfree cell phone use. Earlier we reported that a new study found almost no difference between drivers who used phone without handsfree, and drivers that used phones with handsfree. Seems like a silly law, but if you live in the UK don't try and protest--just invest in a handsfree device. New York residents have had to live with similar legislation for some time now, and it has received a fair amount of press.
