Cell phone usage in CT is permitted for Law Enforcement Officers.
For us normal citizens, anyone can be stopped for "Probable Cause". This includes but is not limited to; erratic operation, a license plate lamp out or any lamp out, a "Loud" exhaust system, because you came really close to that yellow line, 14-236 or 14-240 (Too close or failure to drive right), someone made a complaint relative to the above and is willing to make a formal complaint or, because I feel like it and I'll make something up later.
Distracted driving is bad, no matter what. We've all done it and some still do it. Some do it well and some drive like they are drunk while they update their Facebook page, for instance.
I have a tricky right turn coming up - gotta go!
