A legislative committee on Prince Edward Island has decided not to recommend the province ban hand-held cellphones while driving.

The committee held public hearings over the past several months to consider such a ban.

A report tabled in the P.E.I. legislature Friday by committee chair Janice Sherry said there wasn't enough information to recommend an outright ban. The report said the province should study the issue further over the next year, and look at what other jurisdictions are doing.

It also recommended that the province educate Islanders about the dangers of using a cellphone while driving.
