National Ban on the use of electronic devices while driving sign now

Washington, DC The National Safety Council estimates at least 1.6 million crashes each year are caused by drivers using cell phones and texting.

NSC estimates that 1.4 million crashes each year are caused by drivers using cell phones and a minimum of 200,000 additional crashes each year are caused by drivers who are texting. (1)
Thats 5.5 times more crashes than reported alcohol-related accidents. (2)

Clearly, you can see where this is increasingly becoming one of the most deadly epidemics our nation faces.


What we would like are:


1) A National Ban on the use of all telecommunication devices while operating a motor vehicle except in the case of emergency.


2) Strict enforcement and penalties for all drivers using a telecommunications device while operating a motor vehicle.


Exception:
Allow the use of hands-free or voice-operated technology to transmit a call, text message or electronic mail message while operating a moving motor vehicle.


We agree, that a National Law to ban the use of cell phones and cell phone related devices in motor vehicles by drivers is the most effective means to save thousands of lives.
