"Driving while changing the radio is distracting enough, let alone taking your eyes off the road to type even a short sentence or two," said MSMS president Richard E. Smith, MD, a Detroit obstetrician/gynecologist. "It's very dangerous."Thirteen states ban texting while driving, and six have laws banning the use of hand held phones while driving. Michigan has neither law on the books, but state Sen. Samuel Thomas introduced a bill in the Michigan Senate in March that would fine people $100 and charge them with a civil violation if, while driving, they were "engaging in nonverbal communication with another person, playing a game, or entering data" with their cell phone.
