As a former Peace Officer I was often required to talk on a radio, cell phone, etc., all while having my head on the swivel for some desperate charcter who had just snatched bubble gum from a child (often more serious than that). I really accepted the advent of the phone headset, and the hands free devices developed for vehicles for telephone use while driving. The best for me has been the Blue Tooth wireless set. As long as an individual is attentive to their surroundings and are driving cautiously I see no reason for them to use a phone while driving. This is "hands free" only.
As far as having handsets in one hand and the wheel in another, sorry, I think they ought to be cited. Pull to the side of the road completely out of traffic and use your handset there.
