Mapping the 'No Phone Zone'

No Phone Zone: Pledge Map

The Oprah Winfrey Show are using Google Maps as part of their 'No Phone Zone' campaign.

The Pledge Map shows real-time pledges by individuals in the USA and Canada to make their cars 'No Phone Zones'. If you click on the 'Get Involved' tab you can also view the cell phone laws in different states by clicking on the map. Click on a state and you can view the restrictions on texting, hands-free, and handheld phone use.

Make a pledge to make your car a 'No Phone Zone' and you just might see yourself appear on the map.

I think I'd rather use my phone. Hands free of course!

I'm always amazed that there are different laws in different states. It's like they're a bunch of different countries that just happen to have the same currency. Maybe one day there will be the same with The United States of Europe.
