Charlotte cell phone ban while driving?

It seems that Charlotte City Council may consider imposing some sort of ban or limit on using cell phones while driving. Three quick points:

1. As JLF president John Hood recently wrote on Chapel Hill’s ban on using a cell phone while driving, regulation makes sense only if the benefits exceed the cost, not whether regulation would provide some benefit

2. There really is little point in Charlotte proceeding until the legality of Chapel Hill’s ban is established.

3. And in any case, if you are going to have a regulation, a uniform statewide regulation makes more sense than each local jurisdiction having its own unique restrictions.

    What about Davidson, Cornelius, Huntersville, Pineville, Matthews, & Mint Hill? You could talk on the phone for just part of your commute in to Charlotte?
    Does someone own a sign company that wants to sell a bunch to the City?
