U.S. Gov. Won't Block Cell Phone Use in Cars

U.S. Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood said that the Department of Transportation will not endorse the National Transportation Safety Board's recommendation that all cell phone use by drivers of automobiles be banned. The NTSB believes that even hands-free use of cell phones in cars needs to be prohibited for safety reasons, and earlier this month asked U.S. states to create the appropriate laws. The Department of Transportation can set policy, but the NTSB cannot. LaHood said hands-free calling "is not the big problem in America. If other people want to work on hands-free, so be it." LaHood's stance is a win for the auto and cellular industries.

In speaking with many Police Officers, the main concern with cellphones, is texting. It is becoming more and more prevalent that accidents are being caused by this epidemic. Drunk driving is now close second in causes.
Now, Voice calling "without" a Bluetooth is a problem because vision is hampered by arms and hands being held up to the ear blocking the view. So, in response to LaHood's statement, Using a Bluetooth has proved to significantly lower the incident rate considerably. Both hands are on the wheel and vision isn't blocked.
No one likes rules and laws set in place, however, if innocent lives are removed from existence due to negligence from oth...
I remember a customer several years ago asking what the best phone for texting while driving was. When I said there was no such thing, and doing so was too dangerous, she got mad at me. That was a sale I did not mind losing.
