Cell Phone Ban for State's Teen Drivers Likely

According to this article from today's Washington Post, a ban on the use of cell phone by teenage drivers is likely to become a state law now that it has passed the Virginia House of Delegates.

What do you think? If driving and using a cell phone is such a distraction, shouldn't an ban for all drivers be enacted? If not, why not? Would such a proposal have been politically dead on arrival? This ban would affect no voters, only those 17 and younger.
