I don't think that banning cellphone use while driving will have much effect. I also think that we can train ourselves to talk while driving and manage distractions. The problem is that most of our society is geared around our reluctance to change our ways. Many of us have fallen under the impression that we no longer can or need to learn. There are ways to minimise risks of distractions and manage priorities. For example, airline pilots for instance rely on both verbal and radio communications. But during the moments of preflight, takeoff and landings, they observe a sterile cockpit rule... absolutely no distractions or conversations that do not have a bearing on aircraft operations. It all starts with proper training.
