Transport Secretary LaHood Does Not Support NTSB Campaign for Hands-Free Calls Ban
Texting while driving is certainly not a very clever move – that’s why it’s been banned in 35 states in America already. Speaking on a handheld cellphone ranks a close second, since it distracts the driver and makes steering the vehicle more difficult.
Transport Secretary Ray LaHood is campaigning against distracted driving – and in that he has the support of car manufacturers, too. On the other hand, NTSB, a safety board, wants to ban all cell phone use while driving, including those made using hands-free devices.
