I like to call my wife after work every day to let her know I'm on my way home.  Looks like I might have to call her from the studio from now on, unless I want to get pulled over...

A Colorado lawmaker has proposed making it illegal to use cell phones and other mobile devices in cars, unless the driver is using a hands-free device.

Even though I'm just as guilty of using my cell phone in the car as the next guy, I wouldn't mind at all if this proposal became a law.  Sometimes it takes a $100 ticket to make people adopt safer behavior.

How often do you use your phone in the car?  Let us know in the comments below.
