NTSB Recommends Banning Cell Phones with Driving Nationwide

Posted: December 13, 2011 at 5:32 pm by

The National Transportation Safety Board has recommended banning the use of all cell phones while driving, save those used for emergency purposes. This was recommended during a board meeting on December 13th, 2011. This recommendation is for all drivers nationwide, and also calls for the video surveillance of commercial drivers to make sure they are not talking or texting while driving. While it cannot be argued texting or talking while driving is unsafe, the question remains if we need to make a law regulating our activities behind the wheel. The recommendation does not specify what the use of a cell phone is, or what this does or does not include.
