Are mobile devices destroying your body?

More than a driving distraction

With the recent recommendation from the National Transportation and Safety Board that all cell phone use be banned while operating a vehicle, even hands-free use, there is a heightened awareness about mobile devices in cars as the debate is heated.

Supporters of the ban point to studies that show how many deaths are caused by the split second a driver looks at a text while critics point out that changing a radio station or digging through a purse are not banned but can be equally as dangerous.
