U.S. proposes ban any type of electronic device use while driving (w/ Poll)

Texting Driving

In an extreme aim to prevent distracted driving, the National Transportation Safety Board has recommended a ban on text messaging or using a mobile phone while driving – that includes headsets or portable speakers, aka Bluetooth powered solutions as well.

“Too many people are texting, talking and driving at the same time,” NTSB Chairman Deborah Hersman said. “It’s time to put a stop to distraction. No call, no text, no update is worth a human life.”

Kelly Nantel, an NTSB spokeswoman, said that system built into cars like GM’s OnStar system or Ford’s SYNC would not be affected by the ban.
