AT&T responds to the West U cellphone ordinance

I received the following email from AT&T spokesman Kerry Hibbs in response to this post about their opposition to the West U school-zone cellphone ban ordinance:

Just to clarify our position on wireless safety, AT&T has begun working with legislators on a statewide law that would provide consistent, enforceable rules concerning cell phone usage for drivers. That would be the best way to address the issue. However, we're also more than willing to work with local governments such as West University Place on ordinances that allow hands-free calling in school zones.

I appreciate the clarification.
