Earlier this week Cleveland City Council proposed to ban the use of cell phones while operating an automobile and Cleveland Mayor Frank Jackson has stated that he supports the proposal. Their proposal calls for a warning on the first offense, a $100 ticket on the second, and $250 tickets after that.

Currently, the use of cell phones while driving is banned in the states of California, Connecticut, New Jersey, New York and Washington, as well as the cities of Chicago, Ft. Smith Arkasas, Santa Fe and Alburquerque New Mexico and Brooklyn Ohio, as well as dozens of countries around the world.

Do you think something similar should be applied for Columbus?
