Could US drivers ever abide by cellphone ban?
DALLAS (AP) — Millions of Americans use their cars as mobile offices, relying on cellphones almost every hour of every workday to stay productive and earn a living.
So would drivers ever abide by a proposed ban on almost all cellphone use behind the wheel, even if it is hands-free?
Could they afford to?
Those are just two of the questions looming over a federal
recommendation that seeks to rein in what has become an essential tool of American business.
Arkansas salesman Junior Woods for one says that the ban, if
adopted, would devastate his business.
Because he lives in a rural state, his minimum drive is an hour and a half.
The National Transportation Safety Board this week declared that texting, emailing or chatting while driving is just too dangerous to be allowed anywhere in the United States.
