Imposing ban on cell phone use while driving has not helped to reduce crashes, according to a study. It further adds that hands-free cell phone is no less risky than hand-held ones.

The study on distracted driving was commissioned by the non-profit Governors Highway Safety Association, and funded by State Farm Insurance, Fox News reported.

The findings come after nine states imposed bans on hand-held cell phone use while driving, and 34 states imposed texting bans for drivers behind the wheel.

Despite the findings, The Governors Highway Safety Association does not recommend that restrictions on cell phone use or texting be lifted in any of the states where they presently exist.

But it does recommend that those 41 states, which don't ban talking on a cell phone, hold off on enacting new legislation.
