WFMY News 2 wants to get you to hang up your phone behind the wheel, it's called the Great Hang Up.

North Carolina banned one major distraction while driving, texting.

What about the future of talking on a cell phone?

Some states have already banned talking on a hand-held cell phone, but hands-free is still legal.

A spokesperson for AAA of the Carolinas doesn't think our state will ever ban talking on a cell phone while driving, but the auto club supports banning hand-held devices.

"To me, to me it's reaction time that's the big factor, and you can't just react as quick with one hand holing a cell phone than you can with two hands. Plain and simple," says Tom Crosby, AAA.

20 other states have also banned texting while driving.
