It seems that's the case.
But soon talking on a hand held cell phone will be illegal in New York State.
It's about to become the first state to ban talk on a hand held while behind the wheel.
That could be a sign for things to come in other states-
But as Jim Axelrod reports, not everyone thinks the ban is the answer.
