3 of 4 Ohio voters support phone ban while driving



Published: Tue, September 15, 2009 @ 2:50 p.m.

COLUMBUS (AP) — An overwhelming number of Ohio voters say they support banning drivers from talking on hand-held cell phones or texting while they’re behind the wheel.

Also, half of those surveyed say a ban on using handsets would improve road safety.

Proposals in the Ohio General Assembly would limit the use of cell phones and smart phones by motorists.

A handful of states prohibit drivers from using cell phones; Ohio is not one of them.

At least 14 states and the District of Columbia have passed rules against texting while driving.

A poll today from Quinnipiac University finds more people in Ohio support a ban on texting than on the use of hand-held cell phones while driving. Only 25 percent said they never use the phone behind the wheel.
