Even DOT Chief Ray LaHood Thinks The NTSB Mobile Ban Is Flawed
Citing the recent recommendation by the NTSB to impose a nationwide ban on mobile phone use while driving, LaHood made it clear that "the problem is not hands-free."
Although LaHood has put a spotlight on distracted driving in the U.S., even he sees the flawed logic in the NTSB's recommendation. Texting, emailing and updating social networks is one thing, but an outright ban on mobile phone use in the car, as the NTSB proposes, is obviously a step too far.
Still, LaHood extends an olive branch to NTSB chairwoman Debbie Hersman, saying, "Anybody that wants to join the chorus against distracted driving, welcome aboard," but continued, "If other people want to work on hands-free, so be it."
