In response to the letter by Samuel J. Hurst (“Preserve Cell Phone Freedom While Driving,” May 5):

Mr. Hurst does not believe that using a cell phone while driving is dangerous and that police departments will use a law against cell phones as a cash-grab.

He believes in a texting ban. Texting kills thousands of people each year on our already dangerous roads. However, he believes the ability to talk safely on a cell phone and drive is not a problem.

I believe there is no call that important that must be made while driving. If you contacted AAA or the police department, you’d find out that many deaths and injuries are caused each year by people using cell phones while driving.

I believe a law is needed to prevent cell phone use in motor vehicles. Such a law will save many lives. But if it saves only one life, it is well worth it.
