Agreed that the problem is bad drivers

I'm still on the fence on this issue. The problem really is bad drivers, but there are so many of them out there and distractions make them worse drivers.
I use a cell phone while driving, but the usage is very limited and my first priority while on the phone and driving is to pay attention to my driving. When I get a call while driving, I don't always answer. If I am in heavy traffic, I don't answer at all. If the traffic is light, I'll answer the call if I think it might be important, but I keep the conversation as brief as possible and/or tell the caller that I will return the call as soon as I arrive at my destination.
