CA may ban teen tech use in cars

California is one of 11 states considering a law banning teens' use of cellphones and other electronic devices while driving. "At least 15 states and the District of Columbia have passed bans," the Associated Press reports. California has already passed a law that will require adults to use hands-free phones and takes effect next July, but this law would apply to kids' use of any non-emergency devices, including hands-free phones, laptops, hand-held media players, etc. "Last month, police in suburban Phoenix blamed a teen's text-messaging habit for a head-on crash that killed two people," according to the AP.
