Did you know that the NHTSA estimates 10 percent of drivers on U.S. roads are using some type of mobile phone, either hand-held or hands-free.
The following list details countries with cell phone driving laws that restrict or prohibit handheld cell phones in cars:
- 5 states (California, Connecticut, New Jersey, New York and Washington), the District of Columbia and the Virgin Islands have enacted jurisdiction-wide cell phone laws prohibiting driving while talking on handheld cell phones. Many other states ban cell phone use in specific situations.
- 17 states and the District of Columbia have special cell phone driving laws for novice drivers
