Ban on Use of Mobile Phones when Driving

A recent paper in the BMJ highlighted the increased risk of RTA’s as a result of the distraction caused by engaging in a telephone conversation - not just holding a handset. As a result, our company is considering prohibiting all mobile phone use when driving including hands free and blue tooth.

Has anybody introduced a policy banning all use of mobiles when driving and if so, how did management and employees react? Are there any lessons learned they could share?
