Dept. of Transportation Announces Administration Wide Effort to Combat Distracted Driving

by Sabrina I. Pacifici on October 1, 2009

Follow up to postings on banning texting while driving, this announcement today by the Secretary of Transportation: “Last night, President Obama signed an Executive Order directing federal employees not to engage in text messaging while driving government-owned vehicles; when using electronic equipment supplied by the government while driving; or while driving privately owned vehicles when they’re on official government business. The order also encourages federal contractors and others doing business with the government to adopt and enforce their own policies banning texting while driving on the job.”
