jenrgw Should the Federal Government Require State Distracted Driving Laws?

Representative Carolyn McCarthy of New York has introduced legislation that would require the United States Department of Transportation to set minimum standards for state bans on handheld cell phone use.  If a state fails to enact a law that meets the minimum requirements then it would lose a portion of its federal highway funding.

The federal government has successfully required states to develop drunk driving laws by tying compliance to federal highway funding.  Would a similar system work for distracted driving?  Should the federal government be involved in the development of state distracted driving laws?  Please leave a comment and let us know what you think.
