They were talking about that car accident on I-5 near downtown Seattle a few days ago that was caused by a man driving while using his BlackBerry on Squawk Box this morning.

Is a ban on using your BlackBerry while driving coming?

It is already illegal in some states to use a cell phone while in the drivers seat so it shouldn’t be too much of a stretch to think that this law could be extended to the BlackBerry. The question is should personal responsibility and common sense supersede social responsibility and a law against the obvious?
