Hang up and drive, please

A driver with a cell phone to his ear, rapt in concentration, ran a red light and would have hit me had I not slammed on the brakes.
I had a green turn-signal light at the intersection of Williston Road and Rocky Point Road.
I was really scared and really mad when I saw his cell phone. He did not even see me or realize his mistake as he just sailed through the red light!
When will we have enough sense to stop using these in cars that are moving? I'm glad to be alive.
