NTSB Recommends Nationwide Ban on Cellphones While Driving

According the Associated Press, the federal safety investigators with the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) recommended Tuesday that all states impose a ban on cell phone use while driving except for emergencies. Inspired by recent deadly crashes, including one in which a teenager sent or received 11 text messages in 11 minutes before an accident, the recommendation would apply even to hands-free devices, a much stricter rule than any current state law. The unanimous recommendation by the five-member National Transportation Safety Board would make an exception for devices deemed to aid driver safety such as GPS navigation systems. The NTSB declared that texting, emailing or using a cellphone while driving is simply too dangerous to be allowed anywhere in this country.
