The National Transportation Safety Board has recommended to U.S. states that all drivers be banned from using cell phones to make voice calls, send text messages/emails, or surf the web while behind the wheel of a moving vehicle. The measure was voted on and approved by the NTSB. In a statement, NTSB chairman Deborah A.P. Hersman said, "No call, no text, no update is worth a human life. This is a difficult recommendation, but it’s the right recommendation and it’s time." Though the NTSB has made the recommendation, it is up to individual states to adopt and enforce the necessary laws.
