Ban Cell Phones While Driving?
Statistically speaking, an estimated 1.6 million traffic crashes are caused by drivers using cell phones and/or texting.  The National Safety Council designates April as National Distracted Driving Month and encourages employers to adopt a Cell Phone Policy.  The NSC recommends banning all cell phone use while driving - including the use of hands-free devices.  Some experts believe that it won't be long before cell phones have the technology to sense motion and disable certain features, like texting or surfing the web.  Until then, use this link to get your company on board.

And don't forget - the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration has already banned cell phone use by drivers operating vehicles that fall under DOT requirements.  For more information, click here.
