Looks like Iowa may be following in Illinois' footsteps.

This time 3 years ago, Illinois implemented a new law making it illegal to use a phone or computer while driving. It looks like Iowa Governor, Terry Branstad, would like to follow suit

According to WQAD.com,

Right now, teens are the only drivers not able to have a device at all while driving, while other drivers have to commit a primary offense, like speeding, in order to get pulled over for texting while driving.

I have some friends who admit they don't have the self control to have it near them and not check it while driving, so they put it in the back seat and turn the volume off. It's certainly better than hurting or killing someone.
