News agency TT reports that the Swedish infrastructure minister, Åsa Torstensson, does not see changing the law as a solution.
She says that to have an effect, cell phones in cars would have to be banned altogether. It is the conversations, themselves, that she sees as distracting, therefore, a hands-free device does not help. However, she does not believe a complete ban is realistic.
Denmark, Norway and Finland are just a few of the European countries that have banned using cell phones while driving, unless a hands-free device is used.
