Governor supports cell phone driving restrictions

Posted:

DES MOINES (KWWL) -- Governor Chet Culver says he's confident the legislature can reach a compromise restricting the use of cell phones while driving, and he would sign such a measure into law.

While the governor stopped short of endorsing an outright ban on the use of cell phones while driving, he says study after study shows distracted drivers are a major safety problem.

Such a measure could begin moving in the legislature as quickly as next week.
