Several states have passed legislation banning all cell phone use.
Here in Colorado there has yet to be a law passed, but State Representative Bernie Buescher says law makers have discussed finding a balance law. Two discussed options are either making driving while using a cell phone a secondary offense. The other is to ban use while driving in high traffic areas.

Representative Buescher says these topics will be approached again when session begins in January.
