Today the Alliance of Automobile Manufacturers said it will support legislation that bans the use of cell phones -- whether for sending text messages or making phones calls -- by those operating moving vehicles. The AAM concedes that any distraction while driving is unsafe. Further, the Advocates for Highway and Auto Safety plans to hold a press conference on September 24, proposing that professional drivers, such as truck, large van and transit bus operators, be banned from performing certain actions with their cell phones when behind the wheel. Many states across the U.S. have already enacted hands-free laws and texting bans.
